2018 PROGRAM SERVICE ACCOMPLISHMENTS
Long-term Animal Care
Thanks to the help of committed supporters like you, over 140 animals call Keepers of the Wild home. Most of these innocent animals were rescued from lives of neglect and abuse but can now live the remainder of their lives being cherished and well cared for.
Our Animal Care Program includes all expenses associated with providing long-term care for our animals. Care expenses including food, supplies, veterinary care, enrichment, staff, habitat maintenance and new habitat construction.
Your support enabled us to rescue sixteen new animals this year including six bears and three big cats.
Keepers of the Wild promotes greater compassion, respect, and justice for animals through a variety of educational outreach methods including our education center, guided tours, website, educational materials distributed through emails, a monthly e-newsletter, social media sites and direct mail.
Our Education Center allows park visitors to learn more about individual species. The series of educational classes includes information on Conservation Status, Species Facts, Habitat, Diet, Behavior, Adaptations to the Environment and Adaptations to Living with Human Civilization.
Educational tours are conducted year-round and offered 3 times per day, 6 days a week. Our educational tours and presentations are designed to enhance an individual’s knowledge regarding the plight of exotic and wild animals in captivity and in the wild. Approximately 17,000 people visited the sanctuary this year.
Our tours include a variety of topics including, species specific facts, endangered species, habitat conservation, how to co-exist with native wildlife, why these animals should not be kept as pets and the abuse and exploitation of animals used in the entertainment industry and circuses.
Our tours are open to the general public but many schools and special interest groups make special arrangements for private educational tours. This year we had 1372 children from local schools on field trips visit the sanctuary.
