Saturday Jan 29th we met at LSI to carpool together deep into the San Fernando Valley!
The Wildlife Learning Center it's not a zoo. It's a non-profit sanctuary for animals that for a variety of reasons cannot return to nature.
The Wildlife Learning Center provides these "orphans" a forever home and strives to educate the public about these special creatures.
A trained guide gave us a hands-on experience, getting to interact with exotic and unique animals.
We got to meet a friendly fox, an inquisitive armadillo, an adorable porcupine, and hold a huge python.
We were also taken on a stroll through the sanctuary grounds where we got to see many more animals while our ever informative guide answered all our questions.
Upon returning to LSI, we enjoyed a Saudi Arabian feast together, swapping stories and sharing pics.
A great day was had by all!
