Education Animals

All of Flint Creek Wildlife's educational animals are non-releasable due to the nature of their injuries.  In other words, animals that cannot survive in their natural habitat because of their injuries have been given a second chance at Flint Creek Wildlife - educating the public while living out their natural lives.
