The Maine Wildlife Park is a facility for animals that will not be re-released into the wild. We work closely with rehabbers to obtain animals that need a forever home, but do not rehab any animals or birds at our facility. All our animal and bird residents are injured, orphaned, or human dependent. Please note that we have little to no physical contact with our animals, as this is often a misconception.
