* In ''Literature/{{Animorphs}},'' when [[SufficientlyAdvancedAliens the Ellimist]] first revealed himself, this is how he billed his mission: Earth was ''going'' to be conquered by the [[PupeteerParasite Yeerks]], but he would move some humans and animals to another planet so that they could live on.
** The free Hork-Bajir's valley sort of counts; at the end of the series, all of the Hork-Bajir left on Earth actually move to Yellowstone, since a big nature reserve actually suits them well.

** Camp Half-Blood is home to satyrs, nymphs, and winged horses. The forest houses monsters from Greek mythology, but these are hunted by the demigod campers during training (It's okay--they come back to life after they're killed).

The first was the zoo variant of this trope, before everything went haywire, while the other was [=InGen=]'s experimental site and ended up turning into the free-ranging nature reserve variant after [=InGen=] collapsed.

** [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-257 Woodsworth’s Zoo]] is an otherwise normal zoo that regularly receives donations (in the form of animals just appearing in its enclosures) from one William Woodsworth, a BoldExplorer who, from the notes he sends back, seems to be on an extended trip of TheMultiverse. Among the things he sent back were a brontothere, a ''Kentrosaurus'', a pair of giant Martian arthropods and a school of bioluminescent piranhas from the “para-Amazon”.

** In "[[Recap/FuturamaS3E15IDatedARobot I Dated a Robot]]", Fry's quest to do everything he ever dreamed of doing includes going to a "[[JurassicPark Jurassic Kiddie Park]]", where he gets to ride on the back of a ''T. rex''. He then gets his hands bitten off after feeding it a live pig that he bought from a vending machine.

** [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/video-oddity Anomalous Item 20224 (A Video Oddity)]] is a somewhat disturbing take on this trope. It’s a series of [=DVDs=] showing a “nature” documentary through one such preserve, starting with regular shots of savannah wildlife and showing more and more fantastical/surreal things as time passes, from some MisplacedWildlife and sky-blue ants to a quagga pegasus and [[ManEatingPlant carnivorous fungi]] big enough to eat small rhinos to strange, alien creatures and [[spoiler:a colony of humans that seem to have been abducted and forced into the “preserve”]].



** The irony is the alien hires Lobo to capture Superman before revealing that he wants the last Czarnian as well (Lobo is a self-made "last Czarnian", though, as he is responsible for Czarnia's destruction as part of his science project).
*** (Gave himself an 'A'.)
** There are also some dinosaurs on the ship as well.

It's also possible for a Fantastic Nature Reserve to be "person" made. A benevolent "zoo keeper" likely does this to preserve the UniquenessValue inherent in these creatures and to protect them from poaching. The less altruistic [[TheCollector Collector]] may justify objectifying these creatures (whether sentient or not) on the basis that they're saving them from destruction. An outright evil zoo keeper will use them as shock troops and as a self replenishing treasure trove of magical ingredients. It's easy to harvest EyeOfNewt when you can apply HealingFactor laden troll blood to keep the newt from going blind.

* ''VideoGame/FallenLondon'': The Labyrinth of Tigers in London is a strange cross between this and an insane asylum, housing normal animals, strange creatures from the Neath and madmen and criminals alike in its cages. In ''VideoGame/SunlessSea'', you can expand their collection by selling them things like the fry of a sea serpent that uses its woman-shaped tail tip to lure zailors to their doom or live specimens, which in-game can be anything from a small worm-like thing you won from a drowned man to a predatory monster with many-jointed limbs that you caught before it could catch ''you'' to [[OrganAutonomy the autonomous organs of a sea monster]].



** [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-1265 The Mesozoic Preserve]] is about fifty square kilometers of Congolese jungle full of dinosaurs, all of them feathered, and a few non-dinosaurian prehistoric reptiles. An unknown force keeps the animals inside -- if they try to leave, they vanish and reappear sedated within the preserve. The dinosaurs are completely passive to humans, except for a few species that have not been discovered by science yet, which are highly aggressive. Apparently, this place is where African dinosaur cryptid legends originate.
