The Center's Residents
The Conservators Center is home to over 70 animals representing many different species from around the globe—including one of the largest populations of lions in the Southeastern United States. Our public tours offer visitors the chance to meet these unique individuals and learn about each species.
Our residents come from a wide range of situations and places. Some arrive young and healthy, some elderly or ill, and some are even born here. Though each animal has a unique story and personality—with their own likes, dislikes, and needs—they have one thing in common: they are all valued, loved, and well cared for at the Conservators Center.
Our staff works hard to provide the highest quality of care to each of our residents through daily observation, interaction, and assessment. In addition to close monitoring, we are constantly updating and upgrading enclosure spaces and medical care as new technologies emerge. Center staff must also readily adapt for inclement weather and address any emergent needs for each individual.
Visitors to the Center have the opportunity to learn about each of our residents’, their stories, and their species on any one of our public tours. Special events throughout the year also offer a glimpse into the unique world of exotic animal husbandry and conservation.
