It is getting wild at the Discovery Science Center this summer. Animals have invaded the center making it their new summer home. The animal adventure does not stop with the wild rescue exhibit. Guests can enjoy unique interactive animal events all summer long in addition to the wild rescue exhibit. The remaining special events are:
July 30th – August 19th Sea life
August 20th – September 7th Mammals
After your children enjoy seeing their favorite animal show, explore the wild at wild rescue exhibit. The main exhibit will be on display until September 3rd.
Species Recovery Center
Children can learn about animals that have faced extinction in the wild. With the use of interactive displays, models and photos children can learn how rescuers are helping to breed endangered animals. Animal rescue stories from around the world are represented in this educational part of the exhibit.
Return to the Wild
Enjoy watching a feature film where children will learn about the different orphanages that house elephants and orangutans. After watching the film, guests can hear stories about the compelling people who have committed their lives to saving endangered animals.
Emergency Response Center
Children will become their own animal rescuer by operating an x-ray machine, diagnosing animal injuries, measure animal heart rates and even suture a turtle shell. Children can have fun with other friends while playing a multi-player game where they have to decide what to do during an animal emergency. Before leaving this part of the exhibit, guests will have a chance to learn about how oil spills have affected animal wildlife in the seabird rescue station.
Guests can end their experience at the wild rescue exhibit by learning through play. Children can crawl through a submarine, dress-up like a turtle and become immersed into the wild through their imagination.
Have a wild summer at The Discovery Science Center for $14.95 per adult and $12.95 per child. Each guest will receive a complimentary admission to the OC Zoo and Santa Ana Zoo with every paid admission.
