We spent the last day of our month-long road trip visiting an amazing conservation center in Ohio called “The Wilds”. Located about an hour east of Columbus, Ohio. This huge center was established with a land donation made by a company that had mined the land in the 1940’s-1980’s and then performed land reclamation (as required by law). The Wilds provides a place for scientists to study animal populations, make strides in breeding programs to protect endangered species, and to educate the public of the importance of conservation. The Wilds was such a unique experience. Just
like taking your kids on an African wildlife safari without having to leave the country.
We saw zebra, rhinos, camels, takin, wild horses, cheetahs, African wild dogs, ostrichs, and many types of antelope and deer. The Wilds is simply enormous and inspiring. Our whole family was wild about our visit.
