From Our Editors
By creating public programs that exist at the intersection of wildlife education and live entertainment, Wildlife Tree, Inc. elucidates the importance of protecting the environment. A team of educators and handlers care for more than 55 resident animal ambassadors—a menagerie of native and exotic creatures, many of which were rescued from injury or abandonment, representing more than 35 species. Living up to their name, these animals feature in live, interactive demonstrations at venues ranging from private birthday parties to public educational facilities. In each show, handlers showcase the creatures' physiology and behaviors, such as eating habits or favorite dances.
