The museum features over 200 species of non-releasable animals and California Native plants that give visitors a unique opportunity to observe and learn how wildlife lives and adapts in a natural setting. Among the many animals that can be seen at CALM include: black bears, hawks, owls, eagles, mountain lions, bobcats, reptiles, and many more. Most notably, CALM is home to 7 endangered desert bighorn sheep through a cooperative breeding relationship with Los Angeles and San Diego Zoos. There are only 70 known to exist on exhibit nationwide. In 2016 CALM secured two California Condors to exhibit. With only 450 condors worldwide, these amazing animals are an important part of CSALM's educational mission. Donations are needed to pay for the care of CALM’s many animals!
