|The Wilds - Advancing Conservation Through Science, Education and Personal Experience|
Have you ever seen a Grevy's zebra or a Masai giraffe or even Central Chinese goral grazing on relatively open pastures in the continental United States? A place does exist where these and many more endangered species from around the world are thriving on reclaimed surface coal mined land in Southeast Ohio. The place is called THE WILDS (www.thewilds.org). THE WILDS is a non-profit organization founded in 1986 and is located on 9,154 acres donated by the Central Ohio Coal Company, a subsidiary of American Electric Power Company.
If you would like to lend your services and if you are available to travel into the exotic Southeast Ohio back woods to come face-to-face with rhinoceros, African wild dogs, camels and cheetahs,
please visit our website at www.thewilds.org
