At Global Wildlife Center, education is paramount. Children are taught the value of wildlife conservation and education through experience. The effectiveness of touch as a teaching tool is evident every day at Global Wildlife Center. Here children are able to wiggle a camel's hump, rub the soft head of the giraffe, and feel the woolly fur of bison.
