The Wildlife Institute is Wild About Education! 

“Involve, Educate and Inspire”E. Rigdon with Tracy1 225x300 Educational Programs

Wildlife Images is both a rehabilitation center, and a place for learning about the natural world. This part of our organization is dubbed the Wildlife Institute, where it is our mission to involve, educate and inspire children and adults to actively participate in conservation, treatment and rehabilitation of sick, injured, and orphaned wildlife that has been entrusted to us.

We want to INVOLVE communities in active stewardship, EDUCATE about interdependence and conservation and INSPIRE future generations to be responsible caretakers of the natural world.
