Educational Programs

Wildlife educaion programs from PAWS Aniimal Wildlife Sancutary

The focus of our wildlife educational program is to teach respect, tolerance, appreciation, and peaceful co-existence with the animals in our environment. We use federally licensed permanent resident wild animals native to the Southeast, including all 4 native owl species, 5 different hawk species, black vultures and ospreys! Our live animals and knowledgeable staff provide an engaging and informative presentation.

Our geographic area covers many counties in North and South Carolina, and we present for diverse age groups and academic institutions. Availability of animals is determined based on distance traveled and audience type.

Program fees go toward the care of our educational animals, other permanent-resident rescues, and our many wild rehabs
Program fees: Contact us at for current pricing.


Travel fees may apply depending on distance from Laurens, SC. Schools or other educational facilities can request creative fee arrangements if school funding is not available.
