Conservation through Education.

To ensure we achieve our Vision and Mission, the BC Wildlife Park employs both on site and outreach educational programming which have been developed according to the following over arching themes:
Creating positive emotional connections to wildlife
Experiencing the interconnectedness of nature
Emphasizing the importance and power of individual responsibility
The New Vision is to develop the facilities and the on site and extension programming in partnership with government and the private sector to interpret BC wildlife and promote sustainability to all people in BC and nature tourists from around the world.
