A wildlife preserve and "enhanced zoo" located just 20 minutes from Albuquerque, New Mexico in nearby Edgewood. Conveniently located near Interstate 40 and Route 66. Wildlife West Nature Park provides a very special look into the animals and plants that are part of the ecosystems of New Mexico and the Southwestern United States. All the birds and animals at Wildlife West Nature Park are non-releasable, keeping with our philosophy of bringing education to the public without harming ecological balances in other parts of the region. Our habitats are designed to provide the best possible combination of viewing opportunities and harmonious living for our residents, and our animal enrichment programs ensure that our animals are both physically and mentally healthy.

First off, the sign that says Zoo is misleading. This is not a zoo in the traditional sense. It could be disappointing for someone expecting that type of experience. That said, the mission of the nature park is wonderful. The birds and animals here have...More

This little sanctuary for rescued animals was a wonderful place to visit. I love that the signage for each animal has that animals story as to how and why it ended up at this rescue. For being a place that is run on donations solely,...More
