Wildlife Habitats

Be a part of bringing this unique nature center to life! Located in Flanders (Roxbury), New Jersey, it is the culmination of our dream to spread the message of conservation for native New Jersey threatened species and preservation of their natural habitats…all while providing families the opportunity to spend quality time together learning about animals.

Rizzo’s Wildlife World will house New Jersey native North American wood turtles and Northern Pine snakes along with other amazing reptiles, amphibians, and mammals in naturalistic surroundings. It is our hope to create an environment brimming with enrichment and full of sights, sounds, and tactile learning. We are committed to providing the best possible habitats for our animals and are inviting families like yours to become an important part of sponsoring them in various ways…to get involved, please see the many options below.

Thank you for all of your support over the last 13 years. We are looking forward to providing you with another way to enjoy the Rizzo wildlife experience at Rizzo’s Wildlife World - Opening May, 2015!

Adventure Lives Here!!!

See you soon!
