Wild Animal Sanctuary, Keenesburg

4.0
#4 of 8 in Zoos & Aquariums in Colorado
Specializing in the rescue and care of large predators that have been mistreated, Wild Animal Sanctuary provides a safe place for these majestic creatures, as well as a spot where people can visit them. The impressive center boats 290 hectares (720 acres) of lush grassland, providing ample room for its hundreds of resident animals to roam. View lions, bears, tigers, wolves, and more from the sanctuary's "Mile into the Wild" observation walkway, which stretches above their habitats to cause minimum disruption and discomfort to these territorial animals. As the walkway is elevated, you may want to bring a jacket for protection from the wind.
