The W.I.L.D. Center & Zoological Park of New England is a NH based non-profit dedicated to serving the animals, environment and communities of the Northeast.
We are dedicated to public education, animal welfare, law enforcement and biodiversity conservation & wildlife rehabilitation.
Known for specializing more in the "exotics" than native species... for many years our organization and/or the individuals involved have done whatever is possible and necessary to assist Wardens and Animal Control Officers and local law enforcement across Maine and New Hampshire by:
- assisting with species identification, whether the animals are exotics found in the wild, or suspected illegal captives.
- assisting with confiscation / transportation logistics.
- assuming custody and responsibility for regulated "exotics".
- assisting with proper placement of seized wildlife.
- assisting with injured or orphaned native wildlife as we have the capacity.
These services have been and continue to be delivered at no cost. They are one of the many ways we accomplish our mission of serving and educating.
It was our pleasure to join nearly 80 Maine Animal Control Officers on Nov 29th at the Augusta Armory for a 4 hour Advanced ACO Training Session!
Coming out of this training, we have set-up the following resources:
A - Any ACO or Game Warden in Maine, NH or VT that needs our assistance, may now email us at the newly-established DEDICATED ADDRESS : email@example.com
B - Any ACO or Game Warden in Maine, NH or VT that wishes to review the extensive information compiled by our Education Department on species identification, restraint, etc... may review or download the PowerPoint presentation here: http://www.wildcenterne.org/resources/
Of course, if dealing with an urgent matter our office in Rochester may be reached at 603-817-6735 nearly anytime.
