Liberty Park Charities, Inc. is currently working on Desert Thunder Wildlife Park and Eco-Center, a non-government park that will depend on the assistance of contributors, donors and supporters. Our mission at Liberty Park is to positively impact the environment with wildlife preservation and ecological conservation focusing our efforts on Endangered Animals of the Southwest (wild horses, mustangs, burros, Mexican Grey Wolves, Black Footed Ferrets) and Captive Exotics.
There is no wild animal census in the United States, and many states have lax oversight, so any estimates about the population of wild animals in captivity is at best an educated guess. We do know that common animals kept as pets include lions, tigers, cougars, ocelots, servals, wolves, bears, alligators, snakes and nonhuman primates like chimpanzees. These are wild animals, who are dangerous by nature and cannot be domesticated.
A largely unregulated trend is the hybrid breeding of wild cats with house cats, with predictably disastrous consequences. It is expensive and difficult to keep wild animals in captivity. These animals oftentimes live in inhumane conditions, and pose a serious threat to public safety. We plan on rescuing and providing life-long homes for captive exotic animals which have been abused, abandoned, exploited and illegally kept while educating the public about causes and solutions.
We are building the first inclusive holographic zoo where guests can experience augmented reality interactions with holographic endangered animals. Our plan is to use innovative technology to spread the message about conserving our planet and saving endangered species. In addition to having real animals and sea life, Desert Thunder will use Media Based Dark Rides, Holographic 360 projections, 7-D Augmented Reality Technology and other cutting edge innovation to bring the story of each animal and their fragile ecosystems to life.
A typical visit to the park will include guided safari tours, an underwater scuba-ride where you’ll feel like you’re deep down in the ocean swimming with whales, virtual reality and augmented reality rides where guests can immerse themselves as an observer in multiple animals’ natural environment, delicious food and plenty of activities and attractions to keep each guest entertained so much they won’t even realize how much they are learning.
