Since a very young age, Scharoun has always had an appreciation for the natural environment and its living creatures.  Now as an educator, Scharoun realizes it is most important now, more than ever before, for our community to be very aware of the ever evolving, and changing, natural environment.  Scharoun explains;

With the unveiling effects of climate change, and the ever growing need for young professionals contributing their work in the natural sciences, Buffalo Animal Adventures seeks to inspire the continuance of best practices and innovative discovery of our global ecosystem.  Our mission is to educate and promote awareness of exotic wildlife and the conservation of their natural environments.

Our programs have seen measurable success in Western New York and we are well positioned to expand our services and the resources needed to enhance our operation.  Now partnered with the leading local organizations providing top-quality after school programs, senior activities, and public initiatives; Buffalo Animal Adventures has taken our place as the premier option for on-sight education in the natural sciences.  Our unshaken commitment in meeting the local demands for positive community learning experiences has been the key element driving our success.
