Charity[edit]

AnthroExpo has officially partnered with Wildcare, a non-profit organization dedicated to the rehabilitation of wildlife Noble, Oklahoma, as the convention's official charity.

Founded in 1984, Wildcare's mission is to provide people a place to bring native wildlife struggling to survive, with the goal of releasing healthy individuals back to nature. Since opening, over 80,000 wild animals have passed through our doors. Over 7,000 patients representing over 140 different species are treated annually thanks to thousands of willing rescuers and dedicated supporters.

Mascots[edit]

The official mascots for AnthroExpo are Andrea the scissortail flycatcher, which is also the state bird of Oklahoma, and Exavier the prairie dog. They are featured on official artwork, including the website, and eventual merchandise.
