Cargill Wildcare Center

An important function of our zoo is helping orphaned and injured animals through our rehabilitation program. Injured wild animals can be brought to the zoo where they are nursed back to health. The ultimate goal is to release the animals back into the wild. 500 animals are treated in our rehabilitation center yearly.

However, many young fledgling birds and other animals are brought to us that are not injured or in peril, but simply victims of well meaning people who are able to pick them up and therefore think there is a problem.
