Maine Wildlife Park
Many of the animals at the Maine Wildlife Park were brought here because they were injured or orphaned, or because they were human dependent - raised, sometimes illegally, in captivity. The Park serves as a permanent home for wildlife that cannot survive in the Wild. All kinds of animals are here for their protection and healing. And they're here for you to enjoy and learn more about.
Small but peaceful. A lot of animals stayed hidden, but I was grateful they had appropriate habitats that allowed them to do that. Because the animals are mainly rescues, we saw some interesting animals including a piebald deer and an albino raccoon. We were especially impressed with the close up views of eagles and moose.
Nature is so nice here. You get to learn about the Maine wildlife and what this wonderful place does to nurse injured animals back to good health.
Great day out, with some really interesting local wildlife. Good facilities onsite, including free parking, cafe, gift shop, bathrooms. Good value for money.
Reasonable price. Great for families. Educational. Nice exhibits. Of course, you can't expect the animals to put on a "show" but you can see many of them.
Manageable. Reasonably priced. Got to see lots of different animals up close. Particularly enjoyable was catapulting food at the bears. The most interesting section, oddly, was the fish hatchery. It's all the way at the end of the park but make sure not to miss it.
