Lindsay Wildlife Experience saves animals lives, teaches and inspires children and adults through up-close-and personal encounters with live wild animals, and strengthens the connection between people and the natural world.
Lindsay Wildlife Rehabilitation Hospital is the first, and one of the largest, rehabilitation centers in the United States. Our team of veterinarians, staff, and volunteers treat more than 5,600 injured and orphaned wild animals each year. The hospital is a pioneer in wildlife rehabilitation. Because wildlife does not have medical insurance, the hospital relies on donations to provide this life-saving work.
But it is the education programs that Lindsay provides that leads to lasting change. Our education programs and interactive exhibit hall create meaningful opportunities to learn about the natural world and live in harmony with wildlife. Listen to the cry of a red-tailed hawk, go eye-to-eye with an opossum and watch a great horned owl eat lunch. More than 50 species of live, non-releasable, native California animals are on exhibit. Only when we understand these wild creatures can we prevent more patients from being admitted to our wildlife rehabilitation hospital.
Lindsay is committed to being the voice for the voiceless by advocating on behalf of all wildlife, join us!
