Park Policies

Wild animals do not make good pets! Although young birds and mammals are cute and adorable when babies, they soon grow into mature adults with wild instincts, making them unmanageable and undesirable as household pets. It is also illegal to possess any wild animal in Maine without special permits. These laws are designed to protect animals from being kidnapped from the wild, and to protect people from receiving a serious bite, or even a contagious disease. So please, follow one simple rule when coming upon young wildlife -- if you care, leave them there!

Please follow Wildlife Park rules!
