The Wilds – A Safari in Southeast Ohio

June 20, 2009

This post is a little off topic, but I just had to enter a post about our trip yesterday. The Wilds is 10,000 acres of a White Rhinoformer strip coal mine that has been transformed in to one of the largest and most creative wildlife conservation centers in the world. Open to the public since 1994, there are now approximately 1500 acres of rolling hills, woods, meadows and ponds that are fenced and are now the home of about 600 animals of over 20 endangered species from African Wild Dogs and Grevy’s Zebras to Asian Rhinos and Bactrian Deer.
What an amazing experience! Driving around among so many beautiful animals in such a beautiful setting was a day that I will not soon forget. There were babys and young animals in most of the herds and packs.  The Wilds has been very succesful in their breeding program, they have been successful in getting some species to breed when many others have failed.
I highly recommend a trip to The Wilds in southeast Ohio.
