Outreach Programs

Education & Outreach

Education and public outreach are some of the most important things we do at Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge. Through educating the public we hope to spread awareness about the exotic pet trade and the struggles these animals face in captivity and in the wild.

Classroom Learning

Outreach programs provide off-site learning where students are taught fun facts about the species of animals that live at Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge, as well as the issues these animals are facing in captivity and in the wild. You will get the inside scoop on how Turpentine Creek staff and interns care for big cats, bears, and our many other exotic animals on a daily basis.

Photos, videos, and props, including naturally shed fur in plastic jars, whiskers, chewed toys, and plaster paw prints are used as educational aids. Program topics can be specialized for each group to work according to age and size.

Adult Programs

Adults can get in on the action too! Need a speaker for your next meeting or social event? Stories of our big cats are sure to engage groups of all ages. Programs can be arranged to give a general overview of Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge or with advance notice, specific topics of your choosing.

Booth Programs

Add a fun, educational, and unique twist to your next conference, fair, festival, or concert. Turpentine Creek Booth Programs help to spread awareness through photos, educational material, and props – including naturally shed whiskers, chewed toys, and plaster paw prints.
