Established in 1995 by founder and director Jonathan Kraft, Keepers of the Wild nature park is a forever home to rescued captive wildlife.
Our 501(c)(3) non-profit organization is dedicated to protecting abused, neglected, abandoned and retired captive wildlife, providing the best standard of care, and helping enforce the humane treatment of all animals through education and public awareness.
As Keepers, we seek to alleviate all animal's suffering and help eliminate the use of wild animals as pets and their exploitation in show business.
The preservation and protection of wildlife and the environment are paramount in our goals.
We Love. We Care. We Protect.
We are Keepers of the Wild.
