Our Wild Animal Ambassadors
**Please note: Due to the confirmation of highly pathogenic avian influenza in California, as of July 16, 2022, a number of Lindsay’s avian animal ambassadors including raptors such as eagles, owls and hawks, are temporarily off exhibit to minimize their potential exposure to highly pathogenic avian influenza, which can be tracked indoors on shoes or clothing. Safety measures have been implemented for the avian animal ambassadors that live outdoors in our Nature Cove area so that the public can continue to visit them and learn about wildlife. Click here to learn more about the Eurasian H5 HPAI flu strain, our response and how you can help wildlife. Thanks for your patience and understanding.**
The hawks, owls and ravens observing you as you enter Lindsay Wildlife Experience are among more than 40 animal “ambassadors” at home here. Lindsay’s collection of California wildlife also includes invertebrates, reptiles, amphibians, and small mammals like opossums and ground squirrels. Some animals are on view to the public; others live off-exhibit and are brought out for classes, tours and presentations.
Lindsay also cares for a small collection of domestic animals who help us demonstrate the difference between what’s wild and what’s not.
