The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
To enhance entertainment, education, and cultural experiences with a commitment to conservation, preservation, and research of native and exotic wildlife.
Wildlife Safari’s mission is to provide education, recreation, and cultural experiences with a focused commitment to conservation, preservation, and research of native and exotic wildlife. This involves two types of service--caring for animals and educating park visitors about the importance of wildlife in our world.
Accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA), Wildlife Safari is able to trade and breed endangered species. The park’s most significant contribution to preservation of endangered species has been through cheetah breeding--165 cheetahs have been born here, more than any other institution in the United States.
Wildlife Safari is focused on providing first hand education about wildlife preservation and the status of endangered species. Over 150,000 visitors from throughout the country visit annually and are able to observe and learn about animals while driving through our 600-acre park. In our free admission area, Safari Village, families can enjoy live animals, picnic areas, and keeper Q & A sessions which may involve encounters with lemurs, snakes, wallaroos, and other animals.
