Come join us between 11am and 4pm on Sunday, October 2nd in the Earth Rangers Studio in the Life in Crisis: Schad Gallery of Biodiversity for fun activities while learning about the Toronto Wildlife Centre!
Toronto Wildlife Centre promotes the peaceful coexistence of people and wildlife by providing education and expert advice about wildlife situations, and providing medical care to sick, injured and orphaned wild animals with the ultimate goal of releasing healthy animals back into the wild. Since opening in 1993, more than 80,000 wild animals representing over 270 different species have been admitted for care. With help from volunteers and donors, Toronto Wildlife Centre has grown into Canada’s largest and busiest wildlife centre, and a leader in the field of wildlife rehabilitation.
Come and discover how you and your family can help work towards building a healthy community for humans and wildlife! You'll also be able to meet and learn the stories of two Toronto Wildlife Centre animal ambassadors, who will make appearances throughout the day:
- 12:00 PM - Snapping turtle ambassador meet-n'-greet
- 1:00 PM - Virginia opossum ambassador meet-n'-greet
- 2:00 PM - Snapping turtle ambassador meet-n'-greet
