The Wildlife Academy at Nemacolin Woodlands Resort was established in 2006, bringing together animals from all corners of the world. Our mission is dedicated to providing interactive entertainment and live animal programs with an emphasis on education and experience. It is also all animal, all the time!
Visit the Wildlife Habitats which feature Billy Goat Mountain, Red Sheep, Bears, Bison, Zebra, a Bengal Tiger, Wolves and more! Down the road, Nemacolin's Wildlife Adventure offers a nursery of smaller exotic and domestic animals such as a kinkajou, fennec foxes, a two toed sloth, rabbits and reptiles, to name a few of the over 100 species collection.
