Our mission has always been to help all wildlife that belongs in an area have a chance to thrive in their environment. Help us help Bald Eagles, Mockingbirds, and bobcats, as well as hundreds of other species, thrive in our area!
We believe that all native wildlife deserve the chance to live in our area. Through innovative habitat building and education, we can help humans and wildlife live in peace everyday!
Our operating area includes the most visited National Park in the United States: The Great Smokey Mountains, home of this lovely (locally) endangered Elk.

Every continent except Antarctica is being ravaged by non native species. While native to other areas of the world, animals such as wild boar are devastating our environment, even here in our area!
Working with Wildlife Control companies and local agencies, we are working to eliminate the presence of these animals through humane methods of capture.
We also support wildlife around the world. Animals such as this beautiful Amazon Parrot are endangered because of capture for the domestic animal trade. At Norma Cogar Memorial Wildlife Center, we have a captive bred amazon who can show you the absolute beauty these birds have while helping us show you why you should only buy captive bred parrots!
We are actively working towards giving wildlife the environments they need to survive. Through our Wild Habitat Restoration Program, we are helping to rebuild wild areas for wildlife to thrive.
Our Wildlife Rescue and Recovery Fund is set aside to help animals in our care as well as zoo animals, animals in rehabilitation, and other organizations in our field make a difference every day!
Norma Cogar Memorial Wildlife Center is driven to make a difference for humans and wildlife around our hometown and the world. Through our education center, field research, and animal care work, we strive to educate our friends and neighbors about our local wildlife and why these animals are so important.
