Description:

Wildlife Images is non-profit wildlife rehabilitation and education center...

Wildlife Images is non-profit wildlife rehabilitation and education center in beautiful Southern Oregon. We have been a non-profit since 1981, when our mission of Saving Wildlife started. Our center includes a wildlife hospital for wild patients and permanent residents, youth camps throughout the year, and over 80 permanent residents who cannot be released back to the wild. By taking a tour you can view a great assortment of birds, smaller mammals, reptiles, and large mammals such as cougars, bears and wolves! The tours provide a unique, up-close encounter with wildlife that is not seen every day.

Although I haven't been there in quite a while, this center really cares about the animals and it is quite educational.

Wildlife Images is a great place to take family of all ages. The guides are all volunteers, so some are better than others, but they are all knowledgeable and enthusiastic. They know more than a script and can answer many questions.

What a great place for all to learn about animal,more personal than going to a zoo. Friendly staff love that some animals get to be released back into the wild once debilitated

This is a must to do with your kids! I took my grandson to go learn about the local wildlife and he had an absolute ball! The setting is more like a natural habitat environment where they house and rehabilitate animals. Your kids will love this and the funds go to a really good cause!

I visited with my elderly mother, who requires a wheelchair that I have to push. I asked twice (the week before when I bought the tickets and... More

This is a non-profit organization that rehabs local wildlife and if they can't, then they have a forever home. The staff are primarily volunteers that are extremely knowledgeable. I took family (adults and teen/preteens) here to enjoy the outdoors and get a little education. We all had a wonderful time! You should purchase your tickets ahead of time so you... More
