About the Maine Wildlife Park
Welcome to the Maine Wildlife Park, where you’re guaranteed to see moose, and more animals in a day than you could ever spot in the wild!
Families, nature lovers, photographers, and wildlife enthusiasts can meet our wildlife, learn all about them, and of course, take lots of pictures! It's always a fascinating experience and a great way to introduce children to the wonders that surround them here in Maine. The park is home to over 30 species of Maine wildlife that cannot be returned to their natural habitats. Some are here because they were injured or orphaned, and others because they are human dependent – raised, sometimes illegally, in captivity.
Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife game wardens and biologists team up to make the best of these situations by bringing the animals here, where they can live safely in naturalized exhibits and receive the specialized care they need from Park Gamekeepers.
