“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. As we become more informed, we realize we do not have to travel to Africa or Asia to find evidence of diminishing habitat and animal populations. Because of the impact in our own backyards, it’s not hard to find people who care - individuals and groups with the desire to protect our habitat and wildlife for future generations.

Go in early may! The animals are incredibly active and the weather is usually tolerable.

Staff is really friendly and the “zoo” is really unique! You can see all sorts of animals and have lunch overlooking the cheetah enclosure! Really nice place!
