Welcome to Elmira's Wildlife Sanctuary

Covid-19 statement

For the safety of our volunteers, animals and guests, we are suspending our public tours until the end of April or beyond. We will reevaluate the situation at that time. We are sorry for the inconvenience but the safety of all comes first. We will still be feeding and taking care of the animals as always so your continuing donations are more critical than ever. Please help us weather these uncertain times and we will see you again soon. And wash your hands!

Elmira's Wildlife Sanctuary is a non-profit corporation supported solely by members and private contributions. There are no paid employees, we're staffed entirely by volunteers. Our mission is providing loving care, life management and enrichment to exotic and wild animals in need of a home. We also provide educational opportunities which increase community awareness of these animals needs.

To come visit our animals and learn more about the sanctuary,
join us for one of our tours! Tours often sell out, so advanced purchase
is recommended.
