This place really cares about the animals they save and gifts them an environment as close to their native land as possible. True care givers.

Love taking my kids to experience these animals "up close". The tour is so educational for them, but fun so they don't realize they're learning!

Black Pine is such a wonderful alternative to our local zoo. I enjoyed my visit immensely, learned quite a bit about the animals and the sanctuary, and can't wait to go back for a guided tour and bring the little ones!

Black Pine is by far the best animal experience I have ever had! From the keepers, to the venue and of course the animals they care for, it is a wonderful, inspiring place! Hearing the animals stories and seeing how each habitat is created for the most positive life experience for them is incredible.
We are blessed to be able to visit this fabulous home to many of our favorite animal species!
