Home is Nevada: Animal Ark Video, episode #9.

A special viewing of Home Is Nevada, where hosts Neal Cobb & Dick Stoddard get a behind the scenes tour at Animal Ark Wildlife Sanctuary. This series was developed for possible programming on a major network.

Animal Ark is a 38-acre wildlife sanctuary located in the Northern Nevada foothills at Red Rock. The founders Aaron and Diana Hiibel created a small wildlife rescue operation that developed into a rehabilitation center and wildlife sanctuary. The sanctuary eventually grew from only native wildlife species into exotic species from across the globe. While the operation has grown over the years in its size, at its core remains the goal of wildlife education and environmental stewardship. Animal Ark looks to continue its mission in instilling that same love Aaron and Diana held for wildlife in future generations to come.
