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 place was a pleasant surprise. As a person who deeply cares about animal rights and welfare, I always get a bit on my guard when I see facilities with wild animals, mainly because I know some places don't properly care for these animals as they should. With Animal Park at the Conservators Center, that is far from the case. The staff and volunteers evidently care very deeply for the animals in their care and take interacting with them seriously and with the proper amount of awareness and caution. Even though it's never easy to see wild animals in penned areas, unfortunately with climate change and humans overusing natural resources and exploiting these animals, a lot of wild animals get displaced. This makes me grateful places like the Animal Park exist to provide them a home. The animals have a pretty fair amount of space and are given enrichment and company as appropriate. With the park serving to educate the public, the volunteers and staff are open about how they operate and care for the animals and how the animals came into their care; so feel free to ask questions during the tour. It's worth the time and money. Plus, the animals are breathtaking and a reminder that we need to protect our planet at all costs to save these animals from extinction. They deserve to share this Earth with us, and this Earth wouldn't be as beautiful without them.
  • The people, the animals, the entire trip (even though it was slightly rainy) was phenomenal. We got to hear the wolves howl, the lions roar, and the tigers play. They keep the animals top priority and you can tell. The atmosphere is calm and you just want to stay. There are so many ways to help and support this conservation out so please check it out and do what you feel you should do support them! It is worth meeting the people and the animals. ❤️
