  • We are located across from a private zoo like program called Zoo to You, manged by Conservation Ambassadors Inc. We ARE NOT AFFILIATED IN ANY WAY WITH Zoo to You. Understand we are sharing a property space only. Please respect that programs space while on the property, do not enter their space without an appointment, thank you. You can contact this group at 805-239-9015 for more information.
  • When you arrive please either park outside the “green” gate and walk all the way to the back of the drive, or you can drive in and park in front of the WHAR gate where you see the signs. 
  • On you walk you will see exotic birds and a turtle/tortoise habitat. You will also see the farmland habitat and pond with horses, emu’s, camels and ostriches in addition to other seasonal animals. Theses animals are part of Zoo to You.

We receive Zero government funding, and “OPRAH” or “Ellen” do support our mission. We are operated by an all volunteer group of caring directors and community volunteers. Speaking of which, if you are interested about becoming a WHAR staff volunteer, please set up an orientation appointment to see if this is a good fit for you and your worldly ideas.

A winter sunset in Jan 2014.” You just never know what amazing sky will-set the back drop as you visit the WHAR Wolves. Twilight is the perfect time to schedule a tour and hang out while the wolves howl in the night amidst a glistening hue of oranges and blues dropped behind a mountain back drop.
