Doubt led to drive for Francis, who still isn't sure why one of Status Quo's biggest hits is so beloved. The Third Day frontman talks about some of the classic songs he wrote with the band, and what changed for his solo country album.
Colorado is also home to several sanctuaries that provide refuge for native wildlife, as well as other rescued species, which we don't often get to see outside a zoo. This unique Association of Zoos and Aquariums-certified sanctuary offers guided educational tours about the importance of the beautiful and majestic wolf and other misunderstood wild can ids in our ecosystem.
The center focuses on providing natural habitats for its animals, which include Mexican Grey Wolves and Swift Foxes. The Gabriel Foundation Aviary & Adoption Center (TGF), in Elizabeth, has been a safe place for parrots and other birds in its current location since 2005 (it was previously in Basalt).
A huge part of the foundation's mission is to educate more people on parrots, as well as proper care to ensure more birds stay with their owners. To that end, it opens up its doors to visitors, who get a chance to learn more about parrots, the sanctuary, adoption, and more.

The Wild Animal Sanctuary (TWAS) in Leesburg offers 738 acres of refuge for large carnivores that were abused, abandoned, illegally kept, or victims of other horrible conditions. The site hosts around 520 large carnivores and serves as an educational facility that you can visit any day you choose.
Over the years, this has included overgrown alligators and other reptiles such as large pythons, tortoises, iguanas, and more. Most parks offer a variety of ways to soak up the spectacular surroundings and the fauna and flora that call them home, including guided game drives, hot air balloon trips, and ranger-led safari walks.
An African safari wouldn’t be complete without the thrill of seeing some of the world’s most majestic creatures and one of the best ways to do this is on a game walk. Led by expert rangers and trackers who are more than willing to share their extensive knowledge, game walks also offer a chance to learn more about the natural environment, opportunities to identify tracks and insects, bird watch and learn about habitats and ecology, as well as skills to encounter game more carefully.
Spray your feet, ankles, and legs with mosquito repellent before you leave, as they are just as active in the day as in the evening. Have a good pair of binoculars handy with a comfortable shoulder harness for quick access.

That’s the case with the delightful Tucson’s Urban Wildlife Walk website, developed by Kimberly Reagan, ASIA, for her Master’s in Landscape Architecture at the University of Arizona.
Tucson and the Sonoran Desert have such unique flora and fauna, and I was interested in doing my part to help maintain healthy populations so that everyone has the opportunity to experience them.” Note: Kimberly won a Communications Honor Award in the Student category from the American Society of Landscape Architects last year for the Urban Wildlife Walk site.
