Wild Americas coming to Timmins

Timmins is getting some new visitors this weekend. The Canadian Raptor Conservancy, the Muskoka Wildlife Centre, and the Backyard Conservation Fund will be in town with a variety of animals. Large pythons, an alligator, eagles, owls, and tarantulas will be at the 101 mall on Pine. Head over there on Saturday or Sunday between 10 and 5 to see the animals and talk to the experts.

From the Wildlife Festival press release, about the three conservation centres involved in the Wildlife Festival:

The Canadian Raptor Conservancy performs live, Free-Flight Demonstrations across Canada at select events throughout the year. They perform over 1000 presentations per year and reach an audience of over 1 million people. Their demonstrations include birds that are trained for free flight, as each different bird is unique in its own appearance and flight styles.

Muskoka Wildlife Centre is a facility that educates the public on native, Canadian wildlife. Their outreach programs have entertained and educated audiences across the Country for decades.

The Backyard Conservation Fund of Canada is a registered non-profit that takes in and places unwanted and confiscated reptiles and amphibians into suitable and long-term homes. It is a professionally run facility and one of the largest reptile rescue organizations in Canada. They work in close contact with the OSPCA, municipal and provincial authorities.

Tickets are $10 a person, but if you “like and “share” The Wildlife Festival on Facebook, tickets go down to $8.00!
