Can anyone please tell me if there are any animal sanctuaries (no zoos!) in the LA area? Or where a good location to see animals in their natural habitat would be?
For example while in San Francisco we drove down the coast to Carmel (Point Lobos) and Santa Cruz and were able to see seals along the beaches and near the piers. Or in Northern California there is the Farm Sanctuary rescue. We would like to go to Tippy Hedren's Shambala Preserve, but won't be arriving in time. Is there anything like these places close or nearby to LA? We don't mind traveling an hour or so out of the city.
