WonderLab’s Wild Animal Spring Break is a showcase of animals and their adaptations. Interact with wildlife rehabilitation experts from WildCare Inc. as you observe an ambassador animal and learn about their story. Topics during the presentation include wildlife facts, rehabilitation work, and how citizens can get involved in protecting local wild animals. Attendees may be able to get up close to the ambassador animal, depending on the ambassador’s temperament that day. After WildCare Inc.’s show, take part in a hands-on activity run by WonderLab educators that relates to the ambassador you have learned about. Expect to learn about how animals adapt to their environment over time, react to change in season, and are affected by climate change.
