Support the Animal Ambassadors
The Animal Ambassadors are a unique part of the education staff that represent ACNC. Live animals in educational programs make the experience more impactful, leading to positive relationships with nature.
Click Here to become an Animal Advocate to ensure that ACNC’s Animal Ambassadors have access to the care they need throughout the year to ensure a high quality of life.
ACNC Animal Advocates provide financial support which goes directly towards staff time and the purchase of materials, food, and medical care needed to ensure the well-being of the animals each year. Care items include: Light and heat bulbs, filter cartridges, habitat décor, bedding, vaccinations, vet visits, enrichment items, and food.
Each year, ACNC spends $2,500 to provide basic care to its animals. Another $10,000 or more is dedicated to ACNC’s Animal Care Specialist’s staff time to ensure the proper planning, training, and supervision of Animal Care Volunteers.
Click here to become a Habitat Hero and ensure that ACNC can continue to provide necessary habitat improvements to keep the animals happy and healthy.
ACNC Habitat Heroes provide financial support for major habitat improvements.
ACNC has made major habitat improvements in order to ensure a high quality of life for ACNC’s animals every year since 2020. Annual habitat improvement projects range from $500 to $5,000 for material expenses. Another $10,000 or more is dedicated to ACNC’s Animal Care Specialist’s staff time to design, plan, help with, and oversee the construction of each habitat.
