“over 300 acres and 200 different animals”

The World Bird Sanctuary is both a unique St. Louis attraction and entertaining environmental education opportunity. With over 305 acres and over 200 animals in our care, we offer a one-of-a-kind wildlife experience. The World Bird Sanctuary’s mission is to preserve the earth’s biological diversity and to secure the future of threatened bird species in their natural environments. We work to fulfill that mission through education, captive breeding, field studies and rehabilitation.WBS operates under the leadership of Executive Director Walter C. Crawford, Jr. along with dedicated staff, volunteers, interns and an active Board of Directors. Crawford directs the daily operations of the sanctuary, but is responsible to the Board of Directors in all matters, ensuring that WBS is above reproach in this field. The sanctuary employs a full time staff of 18 and hires approximately 25 part time employees each year. The most important aspect of WBS is, beyond a doubt, its staff and volunteers. They are individuals who have dedicated their lives to wildlife conservation and the mission of the sanctuary. They are also the reason for this organization’s success.The World Bird Sanctuary is one of North America’s largest facilities for the conservation of birds. WBS is on the leading edge of public awareness regarding the plight of bird species worldwide.

The World Bird Sanctuary was quite a nice surprise! It isn't necessarily a long experience, but combined with neighboring Lone Elk Park it was a beautiful morning's activity with just the right mix of education and adventure!
