Our Palm Beach Vacation Continues...

One of our mornings while on vacation in Palm Beach was spent at Lion Country Safari, long known as America's first "cageless zoo". Founded in 1967, the facility has been a leader in the conservation of wild species. It is accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums. It is also actively involved in Species Survival Plans, which strive to engender genetic diversity in breeding, and species survival for many of the world's endangered species. We were guided by Terry Wolf and Rhonda Beitman, two longtime employees of the park who are well known conservationists and valuable members of the Park's staff. It was a very wonderful way to spend a few hours and Jude and Truman were able to get up close and personal with many of the animals under Terry's watchful guidance.
