Every year, Hope for Wildlife welcomes thousands of visitors from all over the world to "the farm" for tours of the facilities.


It is going to be a wonderful day for everyone!

Tours are facilitated by members of Hope for Wildlife's education team and feature a variety of education animals for visitors to meet; these animals are permanent residents at Hope for Wildlife for reasons that are explained during the tour. Background information is also available about the organization and the work we do, and the hospital, learning centre, and gift shop can be visited. There is no charge, but donations are welcome.

additional information

Group Size

Small groups of 10-15 people are ideal to ensure an engaging and interactive experience. A larger group may be broken up into smaller groups upon arrival.

Age Range

Tours are appropriate for ages four and up.


Tours are approximately one hour long.


There is no charge for tours; however, Hope for Wildlife is a registered charitable organization that relies heavily on donations, so donations are greatly appreciated. If it is preferable to donate items instead, Hope for Wildlife is always in need of eggs, gas cards, leafy greens (no iceberg lettuce please!), and frozen fruit.


For the safety and welfare of the animals at Hope for Wildlife and those of visitors, pets are not permitted to tour the site.
