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 pet the long necks of giraffes, feel the wooly fur of bison, and rub the soft heads of llamas.
