Go WILD for wildlife!
In the Ozark Mountains on 459 acres and home to a variety of exotic and native animals, Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge (TCWR) is one of the nation’s most respected big cat sanctuaries. Accredited by the Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries, this nonprofit, ethical animal tourism destination is also a Top 10 Northwest Arkansas attraction and one of the most popular in Eureka Springs.
Enjoy educational daily tours or experience Africa in the Ozarks in one of their unique lodging accommodations. And don’t miss their popular annual events like the Golf to the Rescue charity golf tournament in August, the Sipping For Sanctuary craft beer/wine tasting event in September or the Howl-O-Ween Spooktacular in October!
Now that we’ve let the “cat out of the bag,” go to TCWR.org to learn how you can help protect survivors of the exotic animal trade. And follow them on social media for regular updates, photos, videos and more.
