Exotic animals, based in Upstate NY, teach awareness of nature

Exotic and native animals make appearances in Central New York, aimed at educating about nature

Thety have dozens of animals, some exotic and endangered, some that are almost common (all licensed!), and Wowee Wildlife (Wowee stands for world wildlife education encounters) uses them to teach about nature and animals' roles in the ecology.

When Sally Reaves visited us on Weekend Today in Central New York, she brought a Tamarind, and a young bobcat, and talked about each (watch the video!).

Wowee is based in Wayne County, between Syracuse and Rochester, and travels for special presentations to a six county Upstate area. You can see more at
