More than a science and wildlife center, we’re also a home.


Be a Hero for Our Animals

CuriOdyssey is not just a children’s science and wildlife center. It’s also a home for animals like Caro, Solo, Gunner, and Dylan who can’t survive on their own. Once badly injured and neglected, these animals became too familiar with human caregivers during rehabilitation to be safely released into the wild. Now they happily live and play at CuriOdyssey and are a vital part of our mission to provide a premier science education to all children.

Your donation will make a difference in the lives of all of our animals and help us continue teaching the next generation to think like scientists, to respect the natural world, and above all else, to be curious.

All gifts to CuriOdyssey are being matched dollar-for-dollar in December—so by donating today, you are doubling the impact of your gift! That means double the impact for our extraordinary animals and the life-changing programs they make possible. Thank you!
