Wildlife Education Programs

Our educators provide inspiring & engaging conservation-based wildlife education programs for children & adults of all ages. Each year we deliver several hundred presentations to schools, camps, scouts, libraries, & community organizations on Long Island.

Wildlife Rescue

We field over 10,000 calls annually in response to emergency situations. In addition to calls from the public, we are contacted by police officers, fire departments, town, and municipal animal shelters, state wildlife officials, and veterinary hospitals all over Long Island.

Wildlife Rehabilitation

Our Wildlife Rehabilitation Hospital serves as the primary resource for injured & orphaned wildlife on Long Island in Nassau & Western Suffolk Counties. We provide compassionate care to every animal with the goal of returning these animals to their homes in nature.
