Have you ever looked a tiger in the eye?

Felt the whole-body impact of lions roaring?

Watched wolves romp through the woods?

These and other once-in-a-lifetime experiences are possible at the Conservators Center, a haven for almost 90 wild animals with a focus on education, conservation, and rescue.

An "oofing" at the Conservators Center is an experience you'll have to feel to believe. It's the earth-shaking sound our 20 lions make when they roar to one another. Our guides call to them on every tour, and you may have the opportunity to hear them from just 5 feet away!

You'll also get up close and personal with tigers, leopards, wolves, lemurs, binturongs, and other exotic species.

Tours, adoptions, memberships, and other donations support our work, so every visit from you helps us help them.

Come for a visit today, and awaken your wild side!

  • This is worth a stop or plan a trip around it. We thought the tour was excellent and the animals well cared for. Loved it. Wished we lived closer so we could volunteer.  more »
  • Our favorite part was hearing the lions "oofing." That was an incredible experience. Our tour guide, Shri, was excellent. He had a pleasant demeanor and shared lots of information.  more »

  • We are long time fans and visitors of the Conservator Center. We have always loved the fact that they take so much pride in the care of their animals. When you visit, you get your own tour guide who will tell you the great stories about how these animals were rescued while providing a wealth of information about the animal characteristics as well. They interact with them as well which is something I have never been able to experience at a zoo. These experiences are far superior for the visitors and we will continue to return as often as we can. I urge everyone to visit these amazing animals. If you love them enough, adopt one!!!
  • Took our family (boys 4 and 1) on a Sunday in early January for the Family Friendly tour. The keepers were explaining to me how they put a lot of effort into enrichment and socializing the animals and it shows - they werenโ€™t just sleeping around while we stared at them. Most of the singing dogs, wolves, servals, lemurs and lions were engaging with the group and being friendly. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ The a highlight of our tour was the guides โ€œtalkingโ€ to the pride of lions - check out this video! Super unique experience. ๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ…๐Ÿ•๐Ÿบ
