Rocky Mountain Wildlife Park

Rocky Mountain Wildlife Park is a privately owned facility in operation since 1986. Our purpose is to educate people about native Colorado wildlife and provide an opportunity to see these beautiful animals up close in natural habitats.

All of our animals are non-releasable. Some are rescues from people who had them as pets and realized they do not make good pets.  Some are rescues from the wild who were injured or orphaned. Others were born in captivity.  We strive to keep them all content and healthy. 

Video made in 2005.

Regardless of their history, our animals have lost their natural fear of people and do not have the skills to survive in the wild.  If released, they would most likely be killed trying to get to people for food or starve to death due to lack of survival skills. Additionally, none of our animals are candidates for rehabilitation for release to the wild due to human acclimation.

Come join us at the park and learn about each of our animals and their unique stories.

This facility receives no state or federal funding and relies solely on donations, admissions, and sales proceeds from the gift shop.

We are CLOSED on Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day
