Black-legged Deer Ticks carry Lyme Disease

Lyme disease is a bacterial infection spread by the unassuming Deer Tick (Ixodes scapularis).

 

The bad news: They attach to your socks and trousers so that you carry them home and they have time to infect you.

 

The good news: They must be attached for 24-36 hours before the infection transmits to you.

We all need space

The concept of personal space is universal across species and humans. However, the size of the bubble can vary by species, country, or relationship.

Humans have different tolerances for where a stranger, a colleague, and a family member can be relative to us; animals make those same calculations.

Respecting every animal's space will ensure a mutually successful, safe, and comfortable encounter between you and the wildlife in our havens.

To ensure this, we ask that you follow all instruction from your guide, who will navigate these boundaries for you to ensure a safe interaction.

I solemnly swear I will heed all instructions to keep me and the animals safe.

I accept my duty to tuck in my socks, watch out for rocks,

 

Look out for sticks, and check for ticks,

Both in and out of the Havens.

The Oath

I solemnly swear I will heed all instructions to keep me and the animals safe...​
