While in the Denver, Colorado area visiting my (not so) little brother, we made our way to the Wild Animal Sanctuary. The Wild Animal Sanctuary is the oldest and largest nonprofit sanctuary in the US dedicated exclusively to rescuing captive exotic and endangered large carnivores.
So it really is: Lions, tigers and bears! Oh my!
What a great organization, that does great work with rehabilitating animals who have come from circuses, small zoos and roadside attractions, and give them a life that is as close to living in the wild as possible.
Visitors walk along a mile-long raised walkway so that we can view the animals at the sanctuary without infringing on the animals’ territory.
