I normally don't read other travelers' reviews of a place before writing my own (I don't want my impression to be influenced by theirs), but I noticed that one guy had written a three-star review of this place. Please read that review. Then realize what he is complaining about (it is hilarious).
Anyhow... this place is serving a lofty purpose. And they are doing it well. The tour was great, and our guide was very engaging, and knew a lot of the stories behind the various animals which were on exhibit. Sadly, most of the animals ended up here because of encounters with humans, either good-intentioned or otherwise. On the flip side, they seem to be well cared for here, and will likely outlive their associates still in the wild. This is a place that both kids and adults can enjoy (and be educated by). We got to see bald eagles being fed (very cool), a grizzly bear relaxing in a tub (I never though "grizzly" and "cute" would be two words that would work together), and had a bobcat "pose" for pictures (not really... but it sure seemed like it!)
We thoroughly enjoyed our time here, so much so that we ended up buying up what seemed like half of the gift shop, after our tour. Thank you, Wildlife Images, for all that you do!
