Go behind the scenes at the Animal Hospital to see where they treat and care for over 5,000 animals, and meet the magnificent eagles, hawks and owls at the Raptors! Exhibit.


  • What wildlife can I see?

    At the Lindsay Wildlife Museum you can see, touch, feed and interact with hundreds of live, non-releasable California wild animals. See majestic hawks, owls, eagles and birds of prey. Go face to face with native mammals like the gray fox, bats and opossums. Discover reptiles and amphibians like snakes, turtles, and toads. Meet the animal ambassadors and see how they care for rare creatures during special demonstrations.
  • How does the Museum help save wildlife?

    The Lindsay Wildlife Museum's wildlife hospital is the oldest and one of the largest rehabilitation centers in the United States, treating 5,000 injured and orphaned wild animals each year for free. A pioneer in wildlife rehabilitation, the hospital provides the top medical care to regional wild animals and many now standard protocols were developed here. Since most of the animals treated at the hospital are injured from adverse contact with people, the museum educates the public to help prevent animal hardship from humanity.
