We are about caring for animals of all kinds and all animal families - insects, fish, birds, arachnids, arthropods, amphibians, reptiles, and small mammals. We take these amazing creatures in when they are unwanted, we rescue them when the RCMP or the Department of Fish & Wildlife call us. We provide a secure home for the animals and provide vet. care, the specialized food they need, the right kind of shelter, and stimulus. We care for them for the rest of their natural lives - some of our animals live over 100 years.

We are about education. We teach thousands of kids and adults each year about animals and the natural world. We do this in schools of all levels, libraries, festivals, daycares, senior homes, private homes etc. We also provide a wide variety of learning experiences at our rescue facility with tours of our animals, Nature Clubs for kids, Junior Zoo Keeping courses for teens, Adult Career Training courses, Summer Camps, Spring Break Camps, and volunteer opportunities for teens and adults.

We give back to the community by supporting organizations such as BC Children's Hospital, Variety Club, Canuck Place and more. We take our animals to these kids who need an adventure, some stimulus, a chance to learn about animals of all kinds. We do this for kids in need and we do it for the warmth it adds to our lives.

We do all these things with the help of dedicated volunteers, knowledgeable and experienced staff and our dedicated Board of Directors - and we do it every day of the year.

  • What a great place for kids and adults! Over 300 different animals to see! The price makes sense as they are taking care of all the exotic animals donated by pet owners, it’s about being sustainable and supporting these abandoned animals, not profits. We had our 6 year old’s birthday here and the kids had a great time! It also feels great that the money paid sponsors the care of the animals. They also take the animals to you on road shows and class presentations!
  • So happy to know this place is so passionate about rescuing reptiles! My son had a blast visiting here. We will be back for SURE!
