Audubon Nature Institute Saves Species in 2016
From the Cute to the Wild, Audubon Nature Institute had a Significant Year Saving Animals from Extinction
Families enjoy visiting Audubon Nature Institute attractions, such as the Zoo, Aquarium, and Butterfly Garden and Insectarium, but some of the most important work goes on behind-the-scenes. With an enduring commitment to wildlife conservation, Audubon accomplished a number of significant milestones in 2016 to help save animals from extinction.
"From rescuing, rehabilitating and releasing sea turtles to breeding and caring for endangered African painted dog pups, Audubon is making a difference in animals that are declining in the wild. We are thankful for the support of the community to help continue and grow our efforts to conserve wildlife."
