Learn why travelling wild animal shows, circuses and magic shows exploit wild animals. Bright lights, loud crowds and flaming hoops are scary for wild animals, but trainers force tigers, lions, elephants and other animals to do tricks through fear and starvation.
Have you noticed that Quarantine is under construction? We are expanding to add outdoor access, which greatly improves the quality of care animals receive, as well as allowing for more animals to be housed at a time. Quarantine is our welcome mat to the sanctuary, where new residents receive much-needed vet care, get their vaccines and get acquainted with their new homes.
The tour guide has an infectious charisma!
Thank you to everyone who came out for our annual Last Twilight donor event on Saturday, November 3, 2018! Keeper Lauren Humphries had a lot to tell us about operant conditioning for our animals.
