Visit to The Creature Conservancy   

Have you ever arrived at work to find an alligator on the doorstep? Well, it happens! In 2005 it was the beginning of what has become The Creature Conservancy. Al the Alligator was soon joined by a sloth rescued from a trailer park, an abandoned macaw, pythons discovered in a dumpster, and iguanas found wandering loose on the University of Michigan campus. The Creature Conservancy gives these animals homes, and important teaching jobs. Since 2005, the facility’s residents have expanded to include injured, non-releasable wildlife, and a few animals specifically selected to achieve educational goals. Join this tour and experience a remarkable community resource where you will have the opportunity to meet and learn about several Conservancy residents.

Please note: This is an in-person, off-site field trip. Enrollment is limited to 30 attendees. 

Our program will be led by Specialist Handlers, who will present the animals and provide ample time for Q&A. You will also be able to explore the Conservancy grounds and visit many other resident creatures. By creating personal connections with animals, Conservancy staff hope that a greater understanding of and empathy for wildlife will help people make more informed decisions on issues that impact the world in which we live.
