Our facilities are some of the most contemporary in the nation. We build species-specific habitats ranging from 5-acres to 25-acres, and have dozens of these natural habitats spread throughout our 720 acre facility. Newly rescued animals dwell in large enclosures during their rehabilitation process in order to build groups who will ultimately have a new habitat built for them. These roomy, comfortable environments offer our rescued animals’ unprecedented freedom and more natural living spaces. All habitats have underground dens that supply temperature controlled housing; or hibernation dens; year round.
TWAS also has “The Mile Into The Wild Walkway” - a unique system of elevated cat-walks and observation platforms that allow visitors to view our rescued animals and enjoy their habitats, while reducing the animals’ exposure to humans.
The Sanctuary currently operates a 720 acre refuge for rescued animals, and provides direct education to over 80,000 people per year concerning issues relating to the Captive Wildlife Crisis in America.
