What is Wild Wonders?

Wild Wonders is where kids and adults can connect with animals from all over the world.  Through live tours and interactive programs, our 120 animal ambassadors and educators will take you on a dynamic adventure you won’t forget.


Our motto is “Rescue.  Educate.  Conserve”, and our educators will share the stories behind the animals, the adaptations they have to help them survive in the wild, and what conservation challenges they face.


Our goal is to excite the public and foster a desire to preserve and learn about wildlife, and the important role they play in the planet we share. 


Upcoming Events


Junior Keeper-For-A-Day Zoo Camp

Our popular Zoo Camps for kids aged 6-13 are back!  This year we are introducing some new activities which will make each day more fun and exciting.  On Mondays, we’ve added a Butterfly Garden activity.  Join us on Wednesdays to hear more about the activities of our Conservation partners in the wild.  And to end the week, on Fridays we’re offering a special art project lead by the artists at Art Smarts.  Choose whichever day your future Zookeeper in interested in!

It’s time for the Summer Reading Programs at Libraries across Southern California


Experiences and Travel


Brunch With The Beasts

Are you as in love with Cheetahs as we are?  Imagine enjoying a tasty brunch within steps of our Cheetah exercise yard with one of our three Cheetah ambassadors in sight.  As you enjoy your meal, your guide will tell you about our Cheetahs, and the work of our three global conservation partners whose focus is on Cheetah conservation in the wild.  After you’ve finished, your guide will take you on a full Behind The Scenes tour of our facility where you’ll meet many of our other ambassadors.

NEW Fennec Fox and Friends Animal Experience

Everyone loves our little Fennec Foxes, and we’re now offering an Animal Experience focused on them. If you are crazy about Foxes, or have someone in your family that is, you need to sign up!

The FENNEC FOXES AND FRIENDS Experience joins our other four:  MEET AND GREET A CHEETAH (now featuring our one year old handsome male, Hasani), MEET AND FEED A BEARCAT, WALLABY WALKABOUT, and CAT TRAINING 101.  If you can’t decide on just one, check out our ULTIMATE Experience!

As always, each interactive animal experience comes with a full tour of our facility.

Both of our May and June Africa Ecoventures have SOLD OUT!

These budget-friendly trips for Animal Care professionals are an exceptional value while not skimping on animal sightings or accommodations.  We will be offering them again in 2020, so keep these in the back of your mind while planning next year’s vacations.

 WOW! Our November, 2019 South Africa and Botswana Trip Has SOLD OUT!  THANK YOU!

Even though there is no space left, check out the itinerary for our November trip.  It’s never too early to start planning for one of our trips in 2020!  This year’s trip begins on November 25 and will conclude on December 3, and we are visiting four different locations, one of which will be brand new!
