The STAR Eco Station is an environmental science museum, an exotic wildlife rescue center, and a haven for endangered and illegally-trafficked exotic animals confiscated by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. The STAR Eco Station has grown tremendously since it began in 1997!

Erick, Sr. and Katya Bozzi, and their children, Erick, Jr. and Katiana, founded the STAR Eco Station in Culver City, CA, as a division of STAR, Inc. Working in collaboration with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and other government and environmental organizations, STAR Eco Station provides a last chance for illegal or abandoned at-risk exotic wildlife, as well as environmental education outreach programs in over 40 California school districts.

Visitors to the STAR Eco Station experience amazing hands on lessons in ecology and environmentalism through breathtaking encounters with exotic birds, reptiles, mammals and ocean life in a tropical jungle setting. Environmental partnerships enhance the station with discovery exhibits from organizations such as the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Surfrider Foundation, and Santa Monica BayKeepers.

The STAR Eco Station's mission is "Preservation through Education." It carries out this mission every day by educating students, visitors to the STAR Eco Station and community members about the preservation of the environment and the inter-dependence of all living things.
