Pocahontas, Arkansas

114 Acres | September 25, 1995
Wayne Crump
Owned in Title

The Crump Wildlife Sanctuary in Pocahontas, Arkansas, is 114 acres of quality wildlife habitat, with mostly hilly terrain and a wet-weather creek. As with all properties owned by the Humane Society Wildlife Land Trust, further development and all destructive logging practices are now prohibited there to protect the habitat for animals.  In addition, the animals themselves benefit from the permanent prohibition of all recreational and commercial hunting and trapping are also forever banned. 

The Crump Wildlife Sanctuary is largely forested with hickory nut, oak and cedar trees.  The landscape also includes rocky clearings with a wide variety of wild flowers.  This permanent sanctuary will forever be home to rabbits, quail, squirrels, white-tailed deer, wild turkeys, black bears, cougars, raccoons and coyotes.  Among the myriad of birds you can see owls, eagles, buzzards and many migratory song birds.

The Humane Society Wildlife Land Trust holds the title to this sanctuary.  That means HSWLT is responsible for all property taxes and maintenance costs for the property -- every year, forever.  In addition periodic inspections are made to ensure that the wildlife habitat remains in good condition.  These inspections, and the handling of any damage or destruction, cost heavily in professional staff time and travel expenses.

HSWLT has promised to keep this property as a sanctuary forever -- and that promise will be kept.  If you can help with the cost of stewardship for this and the other properties HSWLT protects, please donate here.

Many assume that bears are exclusively meat eaters while, in fact, plant foods make up the bulk of their diet.
