How You Can Help
Conservations Ambassadors’ Wild Things is a 501(c)3 non-profit wildlife facility. The majority of our operational funding comes from providing wildlife programs to primary and secondary schools, churches and libraries, senior centers, Girl and Boy Scout troops, and a variety of other organizations. Donations allow us to engage in special improvement projects which do not always fit into the daily budget. There are two ways you can assist us in bettering Wild Things so that we may continuously provide the level of professionalism and knowledge that we have been associated with for the past three decades. First, donations always count. And second, volunteers are always welcome.
In the past, donations have allowed us to build a state-of-the-art Reptile Building, make improvements to individual animal habitats, given us technology to assist in performing animal rescue, and provided environmental enrichment for all our wildlife. The donation of the S.W. Allen Wildlife Amphitheater allowed us to bring groups to “Where the Wild Things Are” for an up-close experience. Other items that have been generously donated include office equipment such as laptop and desktop computers, which are invaluable in the desktop publishing, record-keeping, and book-keeping that are required in running a wildlife facility. You can donate directly on our website at our donations page. Also check out our “Adopt-an-Animal” program to support your favorite animals and receive virtual gifts!
At Conservation Ambassadors’ Wild Things, we have many volunteers doing behind the scenes work like web-design, photography, and animal care. The many great relationships we have built with the local community has resulted in phenomenal assistance. We appreciate all those who help in the never-ending effort that goes into the care and housing of the amazing animals that we have the privilege of working with. If you would like to help, please fill out a form on our volunteers page. Any level of experience is welcome – the main criterion is being passionate about what we do here!
Future plans include road improvements and facilities upgrades. We are aiming to replace the structures which currently house the nutrition area, Bird Room, and office – converting them into one large building to serve all of these functions, with an additional area for veterinary care. We also plan to pave the road leading to the amphitheater, with an area for parking, as well as a walking trail. Future plans always include upgrading animal enclosures as well!
