The Saint Louis Science Center is the place to go wild about animals of all kinds and learn about the remarkable bond between humans and animals.
New in the Science Center's OMNIMAX Theater is Born to be Wild, a film that documents orphaned orangutans and elephants and the extraordinary people who rescue and raise them — saving endangered species one life at a time.
Stunningly captured in IMAX, Born to be Wild
is a heartwarming adventure transporting moviegoers into the lush rainforests of Borneo with world-renowned primatologist Dr. Biruté Mary Galdikas, and across the rugged Kenyan savannah with celebrated elephant authority Dame Daphne M. Sheldrick, as they and their teams rescue, rehabilitate and return these incredible animals back to the wild.
While visiting the Science Center, you can also treat your kids to the new exhibit, Wildlife Rescue, an interactive experience where you'll "meet" the people who dedicate their lives to saving animals. You'll explore the innovative ways used to capture, raise and release endangered species back to the wild. You'll see how puppets, costumes and other innovative techniques are used to teach young animals essential survival skills, and your own young ones can take a simulated flight on an ultra light to guide young whooping cranes along their first migratory route.
