OUR MISSION

Fossil Rim Wildlife Center is dedicated to the conservation of species in peril, conducting scientific research, training of professionals, responsible management of natural resources and public education. Through these activities, we provide a diversity of compelling learning experiences that inspire positive change in the way people think, feel and act towards nature.

HELLO THERE

Meet the animals that call Fossil Rim their home.

GET INVOLVED

Our animals depend on each one of you. Visitors, members, donors, volunteers and corporate sponsors are critical for the continuation of our conservation efforts. Fossil Rim is a nonprofit organization, and we need your help.

We have undertaken the monumental task of saving species by using our vast acreage as a breeding facility. Each time you purchase a ticket, buy a souvenir, enjoy a meal, take a tour, learn something by attending a program or spend the night on the property you are supporting endangered species and our attempts to keep them alive for our great-grandchildren and beyond. We offer our heartfelt thanks for your support; you are an important part of conservation.

WE LIVE & BREATHE CONSERVATION

Many residents of Fossil Rim are endangered species. We help make sure they continue to roam this planet.

CURIOSITY, WONDER, ADVOCACY

We’ve been connecting kids and families to nature for over 30 years, and we’re not slowing down now.
