Recently, Country Roads Magazine featured Global Wildlife Center in an article delving into our “new era.”

Highlighting the center’s 900 acres landscape, the spot notes the variety of animals one can visit here –  thousands of animals from 30 different species, including majestic giraffes, graceful antelopes, and adorable kangaroos.

But most importantly, it celebrates the positive changes that have been implemented under the new administration, aligning Global Wildlife Center more closely with our core values.

It is a testament to our commitment to animal welfare, a positive work environment, and transparency.
