Wildlife Education

Enrich a Child’s Life

Let them learn about the importance of living in harmony with wildlife.

Humane Indiana’s Wildlife outreach programs educate school children about wildlife and select programs include a visit from one or more of Humane Indiana’s live educational animal ambassadors.

Program Descriptions:

Wildlife Rehabilitation (4th-12th grade)

Learn about wildlife rehabilitation in Northwest Indiana, animal care and how people can help if they find an injured or orphaned animal.

Birds of Indiana (all grade levels)

An in-depth look at our local feathered fauna, bird adaptations, physiology and natural history. We also will discuss flight and nest building.

Mammal Mania (all grade levels)

Discover Indiana’s mammals, focusing on those seen frequently in rehab. Discuss their adaptation to urban settings and how they change the ecosystem.

Animal Adaptations (4th-12th grade)
