Become an Animal Advocate

As an animal advocate, not only does your donation provide necessary care for your special sponsored creature, but you can also become a “voice” for that species! Animal Advocate sponsorships make great gifts or can be a rewarding experience for a classroom or scout group.

Groups and individuals can sponsor any of our animals or bird feeding area: 

  • $10 per month
  • $55 per 6 months
  • $100 per year

You will receive:

  • a personalized adoption certificate with a picture of your animal
  • a wild animal fact sheet
  • your name and picture posted on your animal’s enclosure
  • the knowledge that you are supporting wildlife conservation
  • a grade-level-appropriate activity sheet
  • a 20% coupon to the Museum of the Grand Prairie store

To sponsor one of our animals, or for more information, call (217) 896-2455 or email

Unfortunately, our reptiles cannot be re-released into the wild. But they do support us in our role as stewards of our natural heritage, teaching a greater appreciation and understanding of wild animals and their dwindling natural habitats.
