Recently I visited the Big Island of Hawaii and had a pleasant different experience that I was not expecting. The Three Ring Ranch is an exotic animal sanctuary where you are able to see up close and learn new things about horses, bison, zebras, monkeys and many different kinds of birds. The Director-Curator Ann Goody is a joyful guide and fantastic educator. This is a great place to spend a few hours and support a great cause on the Big Island.
