Discovery Science Center’s Wildlife Rescue


One of the many booths set up to learn about Wildlife Rescue

Our Dad Blogger and Contributor Robert had the opportunity to experience a special peek at the Discovery Science Center’s newest exhibit, Wildlife Rescue and shares all about it.

If its an animal and it crawls, slithers, hops, or just looks cute, chances are that they are being featured currently at the Discovery Science Center in Santa Ana.

Most children have an innate curiosity and love for animals, and my 5 year old daughter is no different.  What makes the current exhibit, “Wildlife Rescue” so much fun for kids is that they get to hold and pet live animals in an interactive setting.  With many hands on booths  set up throughout the facility, there was  plenty to do and see as we learned about efforts to sustain the animal kingdom in modern society.  We learned that several species of animals are presently endangered, but with focused recovery efforts we can create an environment where these animals can prosper.  During our visit to “Wildlife Rescue” it was interesting to learn about different methods being used to help animals by lessening the threats to their survival.
