Lake Metroparks' Wildlife Center

Mission: To reduce human impact on native Ohio wildlife through education and rehabilitation.

Each year, nearly 2,000 injured or orphaned animals receive first aid and rehabilitation at the Wildlife Center. Patients include backyard wildlife, such as rabbits and songbirds, and endangered species such as the peregrine falcon and bald eagle. Many eventually resume their life in the wild.

Occasionally animals sustain permanent injuries and cannot return to the wild. These animals may become permanent residents or Animal Ambassadors for the Center and assist the staff in teaching about wildlife and conservation issues. The Wildlife Center is home to 25 Animal Ambassadors ranging from reptiles, mammals, to a variety of birds of prey. Visit the Wildlife Yard to get an up-close look at all of our amazing ambassadors!

Injured, orphaned or sick wild animals need humane and intense care for recovery and release. Medical treatment, food and shelter can be costly. our donation can help defray these costs and help us help these animals.
