Your Support Saves Wildlife

When you make a Fossil Rim Wildlife Center donation, you're ensuring that we can continue to provide world-class care for 1,100 animals under our care. Your gift is also supporting the next generation of wildlife advocates.

  1. We raise our animals in large wide open spaces, therefore we are responsible for management of natural resources (land and water)
  2. We provide a diversity of compelling learning experiences that inspire positive change in the way people think, feel and act with nature
  3. We are a breeding facility for over 20 threatened and endangered species
  4. We have about 20 veterinary interns working on high-profile projects every year
  5. Our education department works with thousands of students every year
  6. We conduct significant behavior and physical scientific research (of our animals)
