Our wildlife shows at the Audubon Art and Craft Festival are wonderful for the whole family to see and are worth the price of admission in themselves!

Wildlife rehabilitators, expert bird and animal handlers and bird and wildlife educators present live shows — featuring both exotic and more common animals and birds — at 11:00am, 1:00pm and 3:00pm on each day of the festival. In addition, these experts wander the festival floor with various wild animals for close-up viewing when the shows are not on.

Bwana Jim’s Wildlife Show

Bwana Jim Wildlife Show at the Audubon Art and Craft Festival

With over 25 years as an animal handler, Bwana Jim (who is actually Jim Moulton) and his wife and fellow handler, Linda Moulton, travel the world presenting their unique wildlife show. Bwana Jim specializes in reptiles such as snakes, alligators, and turtles, and other animals such as armadillos, wallabies and exotic birds.

Second Chance Wildlife Rehabilitation Center

Second Chance Wildlife Rehabilitation Center at the Audubon Art and Craft Festival

Angie Colarusso, founder of Second Chance Wildlife Rehabilitation in Wyoming County PA, will present an entertaining and very informative program about the animals she has in her rehabilitation center. Using live animals that are native to Pennsylvania, she describes their habitat and characteristics, and what she must do to rehabilitate them so they can be released into the wild to survive on their own. It’s a great show that will be enjoyable and informative for all ages!

Pocono Wildlife Rehabilitation and Education Center

Pocono Wildlife Rehabilitation Center Show at the Audubon Art and Craft Festival

Using species native to PA, including raptors, mammals and reptiles, this wildlife program is guaranteed to entertain, educate, amaze, and amuse!

Kathy and Eric Uhler bring a variety of birds, animals, and reptiles to the stage and present lively, funny and immensely interesting aspects of these creatures, their lives and what Kathy and Eric do to care for them as licensed wildlife rehabilitators and operators of the non-profit Pocono Wildlife Rehabilitation and Education Center.

Kathy, Eric, and their volunteer staff also have a “booth” at the festival for showing their animals, and wander the festival floor with some of the animals for close-up viewing.
