Wildlife rescue and rehabilitation, amnesty drop-off for exotic animals, education and volunteering—Three Ring Ranch offers all this and more. Started over 10 years ago by Drs. Ann and Norm Goody, the ranch began with a zebra named Oreo, former resident of the now-defunct Molokaʻi Ranch Safari Park. Now a sanctuary for multitudes of exotic species (flamingoes, oryx, parrots, to name a few), the ranch also accepts and rehabilitates injured native species, like nene (Hawaiian goose) and pueo (Hawaiian owl), then releases them back to the wild.
The good doctors share their expertise in animal rescue and care, along with the skills of animal “whispering” to interns and volunteers, and on intimate group tours. Check back here throughout September—or visit their website: www.threeringranch.org—to learn more.
