Inspiring our next generation to love and respect animals is a cornerstone of our philosophy. We enjoy taking the time to answer questions and satisfy the curious minds of our younger visitors, many of whom come in regularly to see their favorite creatures. We also love helping our growing Herpers continue their passion as they learn more about the animals and take on more responsibility with those in their care.

JUNIOR HERPERS CLUB PLEDGE

 

I hereby do so pledge today

to care for animals night and day.

 

I will protect them, big or small.

I will protect them, one and all.

 

Spiders with so many legs

And lizards who so often shed

 

Chameleons with their roving eyes

And even that odd snake that flies

 

Dart frogs, oh so very small

Animals, I will love them all.

 

I never will neglect my pets.

Feeding? No, I won’t forget.

 

I will help clean their messes too.

Yes, even their gross, stinky poo.

 

Both in my home and in the wild

I’ll proudly be a Herping child.
