“Small unique California zoo & sanctuary!”
Since 1963, this small unique California zoo has been providing sanctuary to some very special animals. All are non-releasable. Many were raised, and rejected, as wild pets. Others were injured or orphaned in the wild. Most are native to North America. All have names and personalities, and their individual stories are posted at the exhibits, along with factual, up-to-date information about their species.The distinctive educational focus of the zoo promotes responsible and appropriate behavior toward all animals. The zoo teaches about common and uncommon animals, both wild and domestic, and includes those in between, like feral pigs and wolf-dog hybrids. Zoo programs stress that wild animals don’t make good pets.
This place is small, but it's nice. And unlike most zoos, I'm comfortable giving them my money because all of the animals at this facility are rescued, not bred for captivity. Last time I visited, the vast majority of the animals were very visible. I think I probably saw the tiger, the bears, and the bobcat closer than I've ever seen at any other zoo! I'll probably visit again within the next year.
Beautiful reserve sight. Close views of the rescued animals. A great cause. Reasonable admission. We loved it! Kids aged 6-10.
