Sponsor A Species

Do something wild.. Sponsor a Species!

BeaverThe animals at Squam Lakes Natural Science Center serve as ambassadors for their species, here for the purpose of teaching about New Hampshire’s natural world. The cost of caring for wildlife is considerable. All the animals need specialized diets, daily care, and creature comforts. You can help to provide food, health care, and housing for the animals - for your favorite feathered or furry species - through Sponsor A Species. You may sponsor a species for yourself, your family, or your company, school, or club. You can even send a sponsorship package as a gift. It's a unique way to learn about a particular species and help us to care for its live animals.
