The animal lovers behind Tigers for Tomorrow at Untamed Mountain founded the preserve and environmental education center to both rescue predatory animals that had been discarded when they were no longer wanted, as well as to educate the public about these creatures. As a last-stop preserve, the nonprofit exotic animal park keeps all the animals it takes in for the rest of the animals' lives. The education center also focuses on teaching the public about its more than 175 animals, particularly its apex predators?big cats, bears, and wolves.
Open only on Saturday and Sunday, visitors here can learn about the animals' habitats and behaviors on their own during a self-guided walkabout. These take about an hour and lead tennis-shoe-clad visitors through the slightly wild trails at Untamed Mountain. Guests can also opt for a guided tour, and all guests will have a chance to interact with the animals at the children's animal contact yard. This features everything from goats and pigs to birds of prey and reptiles.
Once inside the carnivore preserve, guests can safely get close to (but not touch) the tigers, lions, bears, leopards, wolves, and other predators. Because it is a working preserve, visitors can view the keepers feeding and interacting with the animals. Tigers For Tomorrow has also been featured in Southern Living, Lookout Alabama, Alabama Home Sweet Home, and more.
