HOLTSVILLE -  A group of Long Island kids spent the day at the Holtsville Ecology Center, where they were able to visit and interact with wild animals.

Visitors were able to see between 25 and 30 different types of animals, including llamas, the Long Island Red Fox, American Bald Eagles and bears.

Kids were also able to feed goats and get up close to injured animals that will never be able to return to the wild.

One of the biggest attractions were the two American Bald Eagles. One was hit on the New Jersey Turnpike, while the other was hit by a plane in Alaska and lost its wing.
