About Rancho Wildlife
Rancho Las Lomas is an open-air museum that lives, breathes, squawks and growls. Our dedication is to educate and inspire the community about the wonders of the natural world, while helping all realize every creature of this planet deserves the right to live with compassion and respect. Our mission is to provide the best home possible for the animals in our care. Our hope is that this collection of exotic creatures will touch your call of the wild and engage you to become an advocate with us.
Rancho Wildlife Foundation (RWF) is a non-profit dedicated to the creation of a crucial link between people, animals, and the preservation of nature. RWF is established to create a beautiful place for people to connect with the wild in our world, and demonstrate ways by which all can make a positive contribution to the environment.
RWF operates from the grounds of the beautiful Rancho Las Lomas located in the foothills of Orange County California. The property encompasses over 32 acres in the midst of urbanization. The unique setting creates an ideal opportunity to attract visitors while promoting wildlife protection and education.
- In light of our goal to educate, we offer various field trip options for public, private, charter and home schools, summer camps, girl and boy scout troops and more! We love talking to kids about what is required to care for animals, different behaviors, adaptations, ecosystems, the endangerment of various species, what we can do to help and why wild animals should not be kept as pets. Children will have the greatest impact on future generations of wildlife, so it is important for them to learn to protect and conserve nature and its creatures. Annually we reach over 5,000 children through our educational programs.
As funds are available RLLWF will establish on going programs including:
- Providing financial support for in-situ wildlife conservation projects.
- Provide conservationists and researchers outreach opportunities in order to facilitate a vital link between people outside of academia and the wild ecosystems in need of preservation.
