Lions and Tigers and Bears!

I took the boys to the Wildlife Sanctuary on the eastern plains. It was a last minute trip, so I didn't have time to fully prepare them. We talked about the word "sanctuary" in the car and what it means. We also talked about where the animals that we would see usually live, and that people who thought they wanted them as pets, no longer did and began to neglect them. The people who worked at the sanctuary rescue these animals and give them a proper home, right in our own backyard. It is a huge refuge, but the area were we are allowed to go isn't that big, but it is pretty magnificent! They give you a tour book to follow, but I was too busy to following my lil' wild animals to read through it all. It apparently gives you the story of each animal they rescued, etc. It is an awesome place and we will visit again once Turbo is bigger and shows interest in learning about the animals rather than just watching them.
