Our Mission: Chintimini provides care for injured and orphaned wildlife, with the goal of returning them to their natural habitat and fosters a connection between people and wildlife through education.

Chintimini Wildlife Center is open every day from 9am-7pm to provide medical care for our community's injured and orphaned wildlife - please call 541-745-5324 before intervening if you suspect a wild animal is injured or orphaned. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are operating with minimum staffing, so please be patient when you call us. Priority for returned calls will be for wildlife emergencies. All other phone calls will be returned in the order they are received.
We are accepting reservations for tours at this time. Tours are limited to a maximum of 10 people and social distancing precautions are enforced. Click here for more information and to book your tour. - Updated August 7, 2020
