Mission Statement

The WOWEE mission is to connect kids to the world of nature. Their exciting personal experience with our animal ambassadors will instill a sense of wonder, affection and respect towards all the inhabitants of our planet, regardless of species. This, in turn, will encourage people to take greater responsibility for the earth as home to us all.

Description

WOWEE - World of Wildlife Educational Encounters - presents outreach programs to schools and other appropriate organizations. We bring 12 to 15 live, exotic animals to the location. We introduce them by name and relate their personal history and circumstances. Many of our animal ambassadors are rescues so their story illustrates the consequences of poor choices. Next we talk about general species information - habitat, diet, behaviors and status in the wild.

We give the kids plenty of time for questions and answers and a chance to get up close to animals they might not know exist.

We also rescue exotic pets and breed some endangered species.

We work with local story tellers - one Native American, one African American to add arts and literature to our mainly scientific presentation.
