Note: Wildlife Encounters has suspended our Public Volunteer program, but may still approve limited volunteer engagement by referral on a case-by-case basis. The rise in hate-group activity and infiltration tactics by animal-rights extremists pursuing terrorist activities against all businesses and sectors that involve animals  – including our own experiences in 2013, regrettably require such a position for the protection of the animals and the integrity of our educational mission.
