It's always magical to spot an animal in the wild, but some creatures wouldn't be able to survive, for a number of reasons.
That is where the Maine Wildlife Park comes in.
Here, there are over 30 species of native Maine wildlife that call the park home.
Most of these animals stay, because they aren't able to be released into the wild.
