As of July 7, the Wild Wonders Wildlife Park, Alexandria’s NatureScape, and New Ambassador Trail system are open by reservation only! In working closely with local health officials, we have put in place updated health and safety protocols to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 at our Park. This includes operating at a much-reduced capacity to optimize guest and staff safety, while requiring visitors to pre-register for their visit. During this time, the NatureZone and the DTE Raptor Centers will remain closed as it is really important to us that we are as safe as possible not only for our guests, but also for our staff and animals. We ask that our guests work with us to help keep our community safe.
WILDLIFE CLINIC AT CAPACITY
Due to a sharp increase in wildlife patients, the clinic has now reached capacity. We are only able to accept baby songbirds, birds of prey, and select baby mammals. We are unable to accommodate any additional adult mammals or adult waterfowl at this time. While we strive to help every patient we can, we are in a situation where we need to prioritize the welfare of the animals already in our care. Our staff thank you for understanding as we care for thousands of wild lives in need already in our clinic. We will do our very best to prepare ourselves to intake more patients in the coming weeks.
If you have found an injured or orphaned wild animal please refer to the DNR’s licensed rehabilitator list online here.
Our Wildlife Helpline (517) 548-5530 will remain in operation to help those with questions and concerns 10am-3pm daily. However, non-emergency calls and case check-ups should expect some delays in hearing back from our staff as we care for current patients in need.
Thank you for your understanding and for caring about wildlife in need!
