New England Wildlife Center
The New England Wildlife Center is an informal hands-on science education organization that uses the activities of veterinary medical care and rehabilitation of wildlife like raccoons, reptiles, and birds of prey, and the veterinary care of exotic pets like snakes, lizards, and turtles as a vehicle for learning by elementary, middle school, high school and undergraduate students. The Center, located in a green, sustainable facility known as the Thomas E. Curtis Wildlife Hospital and Education Facility, is in Weymouth, Massachusetts.
The Center is a community integrated non-profit that serves as the meeting place for science educators, reptile enthusiasts, animal control officers, wildlife caretakers, folk musicians, and habitat based artists.
The Center is home to the Odd Pet Vet, a commercial exotics veterinary practice that treats pets like pigeons, chickens, cockatiels, parakeets, parrots, rabbits, hamsters, hedgehogs, degus, bearded dragons, boa constrictors, pythons, corn snakes, iguanas, skinks, tortoises, turtles and other reptiles. All appointments with the Odd Pet Vet are education based so that the client and students alike can learn the science and biology of their pet.
