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!

  • A pretty good place to visit to see big cats. Staff is very informative. It is well out of Burlington though. I have been three times and kids love it.  more »
  • I've been twice and enjoyed it both times. Very informational, close up view of the animals and safe.  more »
  • Was so interesting to see different species of felines and canines living near each other in a positive setting. Nice to know that there are places where exotics animals can find refuge for better lives. The people who work there really care for the animals. We will definitely be going back.
  • There's a lot of amazing different feline and cats. Very large opening to be able to see the sky at night if you're into astronomy is the best place to go to see the stars at times just recently there is a meteor shower that was very visible through the conservation center.
