“one of the largest wildlife centers in the world”
The Wilds is a private, non-profit conservation center located on nearly 10,000 acres of reclaimed mine land in rural southeastern Ohio. It was created as the conservation center of the future by a group of civic leaders, political leaders and zoo professionals who believed that a serious scientific approach was required to find solutions to environmental concerns. From its inception, the Wilds has been envisioned as a facility that combines cutting-edge conservation science and education programs with unique visitor opportunities. Today, more and more people are aware of environmental issues. Local media as well as national publications have heightened the public’s awareness, pushing conservation issues and their concerns to the forefront.
