Alturas Wildlife Sanctuary invites you to take a tour with us. We have been in operation since December 2014. We operate a 24/7 rescue center, equipped with a veterinary clinic and nursery. Our aim is to rehabilitate all injured wildlife and release them back into their home. In order to safeguard the animals in recovery, our rescue center is not accessible to the public.

Our sanctuary provides refuge to those animals that unfortunately cannot be released back into the wild. The sanctuary is the only place that is accesible to the public during the tour; however, your tour guide will talk to you about the animals that are being treated in the rehab center.

Please arrive 10 minutes before your tour time begins
