Events Description

RBG Temporarily closed until April 6th

Step into recovery efforts and “meet” the people who dedicate their lives to saving and releasing endangered animals. Take a simulated flight to guide young whooping cranes along their first migratory route, learn the methods used to milk Lake Sturgeon and reintroduce them to the Great Lakes, then journey to Africa and Indonesia to witness efforts to successfully raise and release young elephants and orangutans to the wild. Every day is filled with family activities and weekends feature live animal guests from local wildlife rescue and rehabilitation centres.

Enjoy hands-on, interactive stations to explore the stories of a wide range of threatened and endangered animals from around the world. Examine x-rays, become a Giant Panda matchmaker, “feed” baby condors, crawl like a turtle, and more! Browse through the slideshow to learn more about some of the stations in the exhibit.

Species Recovery Around the World – Use the touchscreen to explore the stories of a wide range of threatened and endangered animals. Browse through photos, videos and text to learn why each animal is threatened and what is being done about it. Watch as the globe rotates to reveal where each of the 30 featured species lives.

Exhibit Shows and Activities Schedule – Join us for interactive animal shows, discovery activities, animal meet-and-greets, and more. Watch our website and social media for special programs offered weekends and holidays (including P.A. Days).
