Meet the Creatures
The Wye Marsh Nature Centre believes that all wild creatures are best left in the wild.
However, due to our long standing reputation of excellence with regards to care in our Display Hall & Raptor Center, we are occasionally asked by enforcement, animal care partners or licenced rehab facilities to permanently house reptiles, amphibians and birds of prey (raptors) that have been deemed un-releasable.
The Wye Marsh Nature Centre does not rehabilitate wildlife for release.
We neither have the facilities nor the required permits to do so. The creatures that are here at our facility simply could not survive in the wild due to permanent injuries or inadequate life skills training at a young age.
The good news is, at the Wye Marsh Nature Center we are proud to offer the finest available long-term care facilities for those in our care. Our Captive Wildlife Care staff continually strive to provide for these creatures an enriched, active and respectful life. Ultimately, what these fascinating creatures bring to the education of our visitors and outreach groups is well worth the financial costs and hard work involved in providing them with the best possible quality of life as we can.
