FUN AND SEASONAL EVENTS THROUGHOUT THE YEAR
At Southwest Wildlife, we put animals first. Due to a sensitive animal on the Small Animal side of the sanctuary, tours will be shortened by 15-20 minutes starting April 20, 2022 to give that animal the peace and quiet she needs. Please don't hesitate to reach out to email@example.com with any concerns. Thank you for understanding.
Southwest Wildlife offers Special Events at the sanctuary throughout the year. Special Events include select holiday gatherings, enrichment parties for the animals, and guest speakers.
These Special Events are by appointment only, so you must be booked in advance and space is limited.

Unforgettable evening of capturing and identifying local bat species with Arizona Game & Fish biologists!

Monthly on the Full Moon
See what our native wildlife is up to in the mysterious hours of night. If you're lucky, you might even hear a serenade from the Mexican gray wolves or the tiny howl of the grasshopper mouse.
