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!

WOW!! We cannot recommend this enough. Don’t hesitate, just book a tour! We had an AMAZING time on our guided tour, which I highly recommend as you learn a lot about the animals. Don’t let the chain link fences turn you off - you will see within 2 seconds of being there just how much the keepers and tour guides LOVE the animals and it is so sweet how the animals love them back. They get so excited to see the tour guide coming near their habitat and they are so interactive. Our tour guide knew how to speak to each animal, doing impressive animal calls, and getting the animals to “speak” back. It was so cool! From the wolves howling, to the lions roaring and literally shaking the ground, to all the other incredibly unique animals like BABY TIGERS and all kinds of other cat and dog species, plus rainforest animals we have never even heard of….it was just an experience to remember and we will definitely be back and bring all our friends!
My daughter and I had a wonderful tour with Shri! He is so knowledgeable and clearly cares deeply for the animals he cares for here. There are so many different animals and enclosures to visit during the walking tour. We got experience the Wolfpack howling together, and a the lion prides roaring - really spectacular! Loved seeing the animals interacting with each other and the visitors. Quite a lovely way to spend the afternoon, we can’t wait to go back again soon.
