Wild Hearts is absolutely amazing I have never seen such passion for zoo animals like this in my life! They are all well fed, given the top care and enrichment! Amanda and Brian are on the way to bringing a great zoo and petting farm in our rural area! I have been an intern at Wild hearts and I got to work a lot behind the scenes they truly do care about educating the public and they are obtaining their licenses and zoning areas legally unlike other small zoos! I look forward to seeing them expand and become very successful! The animals are all well taken care of, they receive veterinary care, and the staff is all passionate about what they are doing here! I love Wild Hearts and I am a Wild Heart!
What a great experience I had at Wild Hearts Zoo! Its so wonderful to be able to visit this type of facility located close to so many urban areas in Southwest Ohio. I was able to find them easily driving from Brookville, Oh. Wild Hearts has a beautiful location for a zoo! Outside of urban residential areas and situated perfectly in the country where they belong. Amanda has a generous heart to focus on the care and preservation of our most helpless creatures. Thank God for people like Amanda who take their own time and resources to protect our most precious wildlife. Everyone should go! This is a wonderful destination for children, elderly, and all ages!
Amanda and Brian are two wonderful, caring individuals who are trying to not only greaten a community, but spread the word of conservation. I truly believe they are going to make a change in this world by the work they are doing. They have done nothing but strive to get approval from neighbors only to get so much negativity. With this they have only found strength and pushed forward to become what they are today. I look up to the both of them with the utmost respect and I am still to this day very proud to call myself a Wild Heart. I am very honored to be a small part in such a amazing large operation! Keep up the great work!
Amanda was very helpful when she was giving me a tour of her zoo/farm. Her animals were very entertaining and I very much enjoyed being around her and the zoo/farm. Amanda is such a pleasure and her business in my opinion is starting to take off! her property is so peaceful and a great place for animal lovers and children. While I was there Amanda made sure that nothing happened to me and that I was safe. Amanda is just a woman trying to make a living doing what she loves. I hope that people will realize Amanda is just trying to be friends with everyone and run a great business. I wish Amanda all the best!!
Wild Hearts has opened their doors to the public! In rejection by some hostile Lewisburg residents... its so disheartening that they limit and belittle hard working, passionate individuals like Brian and Amanda Badger. Every time I come to Wild Hearts, there is more to love and learn. Their love for animals is infectious and their grounds represent the respect they have for all creatures. I am SO excited for the future of breeding Zebra, Camel etc!! The live pastures will be completely unique and I CANNOT wait to bring my kids! Thank you for starting something SO special.
This is a wonderful peaceful place for adults and children to visit and learn about conservation and what they can do to help our environment and wildlife. Amanda and her team take in injured wildlife that would otherwise be put down and uses them in her mobile teaching lectures that help children get an up close experience with animals they would otherwise never encounter , children only care about things that they are taught and that they can see first hand. Supporting Wild Hearts Zoo is great for the community and our future generations.....
Amanda brought the mobile petting zoo out to our home for my daughters 9th birthday. What an amazing experience it was. You can tell Amanda really cares for the animals and really loves what she does. She was so informative talking about each animal she showed. I feel like I learned several things from her today and she held the kids attention well. Everybody really enjoyed Amanda and all of the animals. Thank you so much for the amazing and unique experience!
I am a close neighbor to the Wild Hearts African Farm. I have had the privilege to volunteer and work with the animals and people on this farm. Amandas vision for Wild Hearts will be a great addition to the area. While this unique destination will help educate the public on conservation efforts it will also bring a new set of costumers for local businesses. My entire family is excited to be able to visit when it is open for the public.
I interned and volunteered for Wild Hearts, and I have to say that after working with educational animals at a few places now, Amanda and Brian really know their stuff. The care for their animals is top notch and they are glowingly passionate about conservation. Amanda was a great boss and a very helpful friend. I think Wild Hearts is a unique educational entity whose morals are on par with the likes of the Cincinnati Zoo.
Brent and I spent a couple of hours at Wild Hearts and was given a tour by Amanda. This place is great, the animals are very well cared for and Amanda goes above and beyond to make your trip enjoyable. Thank you for giving us the tour and sharing your hopes and dreams for your farm. Youve managed to keep and stay positive in light of all the negativity that surrounds you. Cannot wait to see this grow and prosper.
Wild Hearts is something unique, bringing knowledge, education and passion for animals that is otherwise difficult to find locally. The grounds are exceptionally clean and well maintained, the staff is friendly, and Amanda and Brian are not only well qualified educators but they are delightful people to be around. This place is a necessity to this area without a doubt.
Im so impressed with the care the owner has taken to introduce this project to the local community. I wish I had access to programs like this when I was growing up. Every time weve participated in one of Wild Hearts outreach programs, the kids (and adults) have walked away more knowledgeable about different animal species and the importance of conservation.
Amanda and her place are amazing! It was a beautiful property with some really neat animals. Amanda was great with our little kids as she told them about each animal and gave them a chance to interact with them. We went fishing, too! It was a great afternoon! A big thanks to Amanda for making this kind of experience a possibility in our community.
What a wonderful and amazing educational zoo! Wild hearts is run by internationally educated enthusiasts that have a passion to share their safe and friendly family with anyone who wants to learn how to respect the critters we walk this earth with! I love the open dialogue Amanda and Brian have for anyone who is curious about their passion!
Ive been watching this place grow for more than 18 months now. The level of professional pride of the owner and the staff is very high. They are working hard to create a unique educational experience to an often neglected rural community - which is mostly supportive of their efforts. Im excited to see what the future will bring!
