About Us

Conservation Ambassadors’ Wild Things was founded in 1987 for the explicit purpose of housing and caring for displaced wildlife. With the help of these animal ambassadors, we have been educating the public – with a message of conservation and appreciation for natural wonders – for over 30 years. Conservation Ambassadors’ Wild Things provides a home for over 60 species of wildlife. These animals are shared in our wildlife education presentations, which we offer to hundreds of thousands of school children every year. Our hope is that through meeting these animals and hearing their stories, future generations will gain a greater appreciation for the natural world.
