Welcome to Elmira's Wildlife Sanctuary


After a long 18 months, Elmira's is pleased to announce that we will be re-opening to the public in October! Beginning with an Animal Photography Workshop, then offering our regular tours to visit the animals again, as well as a special Grand Re-Opening event in November.

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.
