Lindsay Wildlife Museum connects people to wildlife to inspire responsibility and respect for the world we share.  Their main volunteer opportunities are for office work and special events.  For a long-term volunteer commitment or to work extensively with the animals, please contact Lucas Abbott ext. 448.  The minimum age for volunteers is 16.

Lindsay Wildlife Experience saves animals lives, teaches and inspires children and adults through up-close-and personal encounters with live wild animals, and strengthens the connection between people and the natural world.

Lindsay Wildlife Rehabilitation Hospital is one of the oldest and largest rehabilitation centers in the United States. Our team of veterinarians, staff, and volunteers treats more than 5,600 injured and orphaned wild animals each year. The hospital is a pioneer in wildlife rehabilitation. Because wildlife does not have medical insurance, the hospital relies on donations to provide this life-saving work.

Their education programs and interactive exhibit hall create meaningful opportunities to learn about the natural world and live in harmony with wildlife. Listen to the cry of a red-tailed hawk, go eye-to-eye with an opossum and watch a great horned owl eat lunch. More than 50 species of live, non-releasable, native California animals are on exhibit. Only when we understand these wild creatures can we prevent more patients from being admitted to our wildlife rehabilitation hospital.

More than 500 volunteers help feed and care for wild animals, teach children and adults about nature, and support Lindsay’s mission in many other ways.
