Come meet one of our animals up close! At the top of each hour between 10 am and 3 pm, you will have the chance to meet a different Animal Ambassador and talk with one of the animal’s handlers.
You may get to touch a snake, watch a raptor eat, or even help take a turtle for a walk in the sunshine!
Animal Encounters happen daily (Monday through Saturday) throughout the summer. Call us for more information (505) 753-9505.
two new Ambassador Animals the perfect homes at NMWC. We are incredibly grateful for the amount of response we have received!
At this time, we have received enough support to fund new enclosures for both the Raccoon and the Coyote – thank you!
We’re hoping to start building them soon and will keep you posted on the progress, as we’re hoping many of you will come and see these two when their homes are ready.
In the meantime, we’ll continue to share some photos and videos of them, like this one of the Raccoon (yet to be named!) playing with a corn cob in his pool.
And, if you’d like to be part of this project but haven’t had the chance to yet, we are still accepting donations to help cover the costs of food for these animals. Please visit our website, www.newmexicowildlifecenter.org, or call our office (505) 753-9505, to support the care of these special animals!
