Cape Wildlife Center is open to admit wildlife patients and answer your wildlife-related questions year-round. Our patients are wild, so we limit human contact to increase their chance of survival; for that reason, public tours are not permitted.
For more information, or if you're interested in volunteering or participating in an extern/preceptorship, please give us a call. For information about our externship programs, please visit here.
If you find a wild animal in need of assistance, please call the center or your local animal control agency before attempting to help the animal.
