Every year, Hope for Wildlife welcomes thousands of visitors from all over the world to "the farm" for tours of the facilities.
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.
From October 1st to May 31st, we are open to the public:
Wednesdays and Saturdays
10am to 4pm
From June 1st to September 30th, we are open to the public:
Seven days a week
10am to 4pm
For groups of more than 10 people, tours should be booked in advance by contacting Betty at firstname.lastname@example.org or (902) 407-9453.
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.
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; however, we do have a wire mesh kennel with a tarp for shade where pets can wait comfortably. Water is provided.
