Wildlife educational programs for people of all ages

Where California’s People Meet Africa’s Wildlife

The Safari West Wildlife Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to creating wildlife advocates. We do so by providing an ongoing series of wildlife educational programs for people of all ages at the Safari West Wildlife Preserve. Sponsored class trips, a Jr Keeper program for kids, and scholarships all contribute to that goal. Through the foundation, qualified schools with no budget for field trips can also experience the joy and benefit from the knowledge that comes from a class visit.

Dozens of species of mammals, birds and reptiles from Africa are available for face-to-face encounters, supported by helpful Safari West staff members. Safari West is also involved in breeding exotic animals such as zebras, giraffes and cheetahs in addition to endangered species including a several types of birds and conservation programs for two extinct species of Saharan Desert Antelope.

The Safari West Wildlife Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization.
