Hawaii's only fully-accredited, USDA licensed, exotic animal sanctuary
Founded in 1998, the Three Ring Ranch is a private,
non-profit, exotic animal sanctuary located on five acres above Kona. It is home to zebras, nene, hawks, owls, flamingos and reptiles, as well as many other rare, endangered and exotic creatures.
Licensed by the USDA, we hold State and Federal
wildlife permits for possession of raptors and
Our mission is to positively impact the environment while educating Hawaii's children about their place in the natural world.
Our goal is to assist in the development of an environmentally responsible generation of youth. We teach about the fragile ecosystem we impact on a daily basis, while giving visitors a rare chance to see the animals up close.
Our resident animals live out their natural lives at the facility.
