1. Where do the animals at Salmonier Nature Park come from?

Many of the animals you will see at Salmonier Nature Park are here for rehabilitation purposes. Frequently, an animal's injuries prevent it from being released back to the wild. In such cases, Salmonier Nature Park keeps these animals in sensitively designed enclosures which represent their natural habitat and which allow for viewing of the animals by the public. Salmonier Nature Park then becomes a permanent home for these unreleasable animals. If Salmonier Nature Park cannot keep animals, they are provided to another reputable zoo or nature park. However, any animals that can survive on their own, are released back to the wild.
