Our Mission:

"To provide the highest quality of life possible to all wildlife in need, while maintaining a family friendly environment through interaction, education and by creating an experience of a lifetime."

My name is James Aikman and my wife, Kelsey, and our son, Asa, would like to let you know about the newest tourist attraction and activity being developed in central Illinois – Aikman Wildlife Adventure. We are working on purchasing 160 acres of farm ground in the heart of central Illinois and will soon be taking the steps needed to open Aikman Wildlife Adventure up to the public. This is a wildlife drive-through park where you can get up close and personal to animals only able to be seen behind fencing at zoos or on television. People can feed the animals right out of their vehicle while they drive the 1-mile long path through the 25-acre Sanctuary.

Once you’ve gone through the Sanctuary you will be able to see other animals at the Park; fox of different colors, raccoons, bobcats, kangaroos, flying squirrels, porcupines and mountain lions, all in their own large habitats just to name a few. You will be able to walk around inside the 7,000 square foot Aviary to see, feed and interact with birds of all kinds. Kids will love going into the petting zoo with goats, sheep, bunnies and miniature horses & cattle. We will be located in the Arthur area, and less than 10 miles from Interstate 57. 

We are most excited about being able to provide homes for exotic animals in desperate need. We are working with USDA and other agencies to be able to help save as many animals as possible. We will be able to do even more of this as we expand our park.

Thank you in advance for your support. We hope to see you soon!
