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.
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.

5-star rating from me.
I already plan to take another trip with Wild Wonders in the near future. My perspective on life and the work I want to do as a conservationist were changed in the most positive way. I would strongly recommend that anyone, even those not involved in the biological sciences, take a trip with Wild Wonders.Guest from June Africa trip
