Wildlife Rescue Stories of Survival

Wildlife Rescue

May 18 - September 4, 2017
Step into the rescue efforts of people who dedicate their lives to saving animals, and the science that supports their efforts. At this wildly interactive exhibition, students can: 

  • Explore the innovative ways used to capture, raise and release endangered species back to the wild. 
  • Experiment with puppets, costumes and other techniques used to teach young animals essential survival skills.
  • Take a simulated flight on an ultra light to guide young whooping cranes along their first migratory route.
  • Learn the methods used to milk the Lake Sturgeon in order to breed and reintroduce the fish into the Great Lakes.
  • Investigate the effects of oil on a bird’s feathers to understand the critical importance of early response after an oil spill.
  • Put a turtle shell on your back and discover a solution that allows safe passage across major roadways.
