Is That Animal Sanctuary You Want to Visit Legit?
I'm an animal lover and a wildlife advocate. But in 2017, I royally screwed up. My family and I were halfway through our Pacific Northwest road trip when the activity I'd been waiting for — feeding sloths at the what appears to be now-defunct Sloth Center Sanctuary in Rainier, Oregon — was finally up next.
TripAdvisor reviews convinced me this was "a wonderful experience for any animal lover." The center's website (it's also now offline) went on and on about conservation research. Except, the center wasn't wonderful. And that research? Yeah. It still hasn't published a study.
