Wildlife Rescue

Wildlife Rescue - It's Wildly Interactive

Discover real-life stories of animal rescue, learn about the people who dedicate their lives to saving animals and explore the science behind their efforts when you see the special exhibition, Wildlife Rescue.

Step into a fascinating world and discover the innovative ways used to capture, raise and return endangered species back to the wild. Journey to an elephant sanctuary in Africa and an orangutan orphanage in Indonesia and witness the efforts of caretakers who devote years to successfully raising and releasing these animals back to their natural habitats.

Explore the stories of endangered species from around the world. Learn about the Great Lakes Sturgeon, the Panamanian Golden Frog and the Giant Panda. Track the Iberian Lynx, explore a prairie dog burrow and try your hand at feeding a mechanical California Condor chick.

Experiment with puppets, costumes and other techniques used to teach young animals essential survival skills. Take a simulated flight on an ultra-light plane and guide young whooping cranes along their first migratory route.

Learn how rescuers diagnose, treat and rehabilitate injured or ill animals. Experiment with the tools and techniques of veterinary medicine, figure out how to save a seabird from an oil spill and suture together an injured turtle shell.

See how your everyday actions can have an impact on the wildlife in your own backyard, and discover what you can do to make a difference.
