Wildlife populations around the world are under stress due to pollution, deforestation and habitat encroachment, with species becoming endangered and some on the brink of extinction. A new exhibition at the Ontario Science Centre aims to educate visitors about animal recovery, conservation and emergency response through inspiring stories of survival.

Wildlife Rescue draws visitors into exotic and familiar environments alike, by exploring the rehabilitation of a variety of species and revealing how we, as individuals, can make a difference. Wildlife Rescue runs from May 18 to September 4, 2017 at the Ontario Science Centre.

Visitors will experience compelling stories of animal rescue from around the world, including how seabirds are saved from environmental disasters and how orphaned baby elephants are raised by human surrogate caregivers before being returned to the wild. Through interactive exhibits, visitors will see first-hand how innovative science and rescue efforts, including techniques and tools, are making a difference.
