For an additional charge you have an opportunity to get hands on encounters with animals.

David Riherd stated; “Caring for these animals that cannot live in the wild on their own is our goal, and feels good to give them a place to live”. “The WLC is great for children because it’s nearby and it’s an opportunity to see different species that are not likely to be seen unless it was at a big zoo”
