Animal Parks & Zoos
You and your family can see both exotic and native wild animals at the animal parks and zoos in Maine.
York's Wild Kingdom
York's Wild Kingdom, in the resort town of York Beach, is home to emus, eagle owls, kangaroos, ostrich and alligators, along with native species such as black bear.
Maine Wildlife Park
You and your family can get a close-up look at local wildlife at the Maine Wildlife Park in Gray. You can see moose, black bear, white-tailed deer, coyote, turtles and other native animals. Your kids can feel samples of animal fur and make sand paw prints at the visitor center. Your family can also try to guess the identity of animals by their silhouettes as you walk along the Game Trail.
You could get a kiss from a camel at DEW Haven in the town of Mt. Vernon. More than 200 orphaned, abused and sick animals are cared for and rehabilitated at this 42-acre farm.
At Kisma Preserve in Trenton, you and your family can take guided tours to see animals from North America, Africa and various tropical and rainforest regions.
