Wild Wonders, Inc.

In the quiet, northern end of San Diego County lies the lush, green gem of Wild Wonders, Inc., a multipurpose facility that celebrates California's natural beauty and maintains artificial habitats for more than 150 exotic animals. The staff calls their charges "animal ambassadors," conditioning and training each of them to serve in close, educational encounters with wildlife enthusiasts of all ages. Although the facility is closed to the general public, through their Zoo Camp program educators give kids a chance try their hand at zoo keeping, including rare opportunities to help feed, clean, and care for the animal ambassadors during intimate interactions.

The onsite staff obtained the park's residents—many of which were deemed non-releasable native wildlife—from other educational facilities as well as more dangerous reaches, such as lands riddled by the illegal pet trade. Resident wonders include big-eared foxes, armored armadillos, giant centipedes, and talkative african gray parrots.

Customer Reviews

Second time my six year old has gone and loved it even the second time around. I highly recommend it for all kids who have any interest in animals. Money well spent.

We attended the 4 hour Zoo Camp. Our camp counselor, Chelsea, was fantastic with the kids, giving them the chance meet and touch and learn about these wonderful animals while helping them to understand the importance of respect in caring for them. They got hands on experience in the real work of preparing food for the animals, as well as cleaning their living space, and preparing "behavioral enhancements" - things for their enjoyment since they live in enclosed spaces. All the kids loved it, and my son said he'd love to come back again. Thank you Chelsea for your patience and kindness... you are a wonderful teacher!!
