Conservation Projects at Drumlin Farm

Drumlin Farm Wildlife Sanctuary is actively involved with a variety of projects that relate to wildlife care and monitoring.

Wildlife Care Center

Drumlin Farm Wildlife Sanctuary is unique in its position as an environmental education center, working farm, and wildlife sanctuary, which includes a collection of native wildlife on exhibit and utilized in educational programs both on and offsite to area schools and communities.

The Wildlife Care Center is a long-term care facility for injured or human-habituated wildlife that cannot survive in the wild. Drumlin Farm currently cares for more than 70 individuals that belong to more than 30 species of wildlife native to Massachusetts.

Most of our animals are used for educational programming, and the rest are species ambassadors on display for our visitors on the farm. A team of teacher naturalists utilizes our education animals to teach about wildlife and the importance of conserving our natural world.

A Note on Injured Wildlife

While some of our wildlife residents do require special care as a result of their injuries, we aren't a rehabilitation center and cannot accept injured wildlife. If you encounter an injured animal, please contact your local wildlife rehabilitator. Find a list on MassWildlife's website
