Wildlife Emergency?

Animal Experiences & Tours

Looking to have a WILD Experience and meet our Animal Ambassadors?

These experiences are 100% fun for everyone, and 100% interactive!

Take a journey through our facility led by an experienced Wildlife Educator!

Day Experiences held at our sanctuary are on an appointment basis only.
We are not open to the public for visits.

You will learn first-hand about Durham Region’s only wildlife rehabilitation and education center. Find out how the rehabilitation process works, what happens to animals that can’t be released, and most importantly learn the story of how our permanent residents came to join our Animal Ambassador Team. Scroll down and take a look below to see who you would like to learn about!

Please remember, during these tours you will not be interacting with any animals that are currently part of the rehabilitation process. You will only be engaging with our permanent residents.

Don’t forget your camera!

As Soper Creek Wildlife Rescue is not funded by the government or any other agency, we host these experiences to raise money for specific items.  That means every time you book an experience, you’ll be directly helping save a WILD life!
