Just north of Ocala, there is a place where beautiful endangered animals can be found. EARS (Endangered Animal Rescue Sanctuary), was founded by Gail Bowen in 2001, EARS provides a home for unwanted or abused endangered animals. The caretakers do everything they can to provide a loving, permanent home for the animals. Wile EARS is not open to the public, they do invite the public every Wed. and Sat. for guided tours. They begin at 2pm, last for about 2 hours, and are 18$ for adults and 10$ for children under 12. Private tours can also be arranged. You can learn more at their website here.
