This Hidden Sanctuary South Of Cleveland Is Home To The Largest Herd Of Sichuan Takins In America

What if I told you that Ohio is home to an impressive herd of one vulnerable species? You’d probably envision something majestic and large like elephants or giraffes, but our resident critters are more closely related to goats. If you’re striving to learn about endangered and at-risk animals outside of the Cleveland zoo, you’ll have to head a few hours outside city limits. You’ll find the largest breeding herd of Sichuan takin in North America in a conservation center south of Cleveland, an impressive sight to see for nature lovers of all ages.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.

This incredible conservation center south of Cleveland is impressive all year round. Have you ever visited The Wilds? We’d love to see pictures of your visit!

Are you a fan of native wildlife? You may be surprised to learn that many local species are living fossils.
