Conservators Center Tour Waiver

Date of TOUR:     

Name of individual, or parent/guardian of minor visiting the Center:     

 Name of child(ren) visiting the Center (if any):     

In consideration of being allowed to enter the premises of the Conservators Center (“the Center”) you are required to acknowledge, understand, accept the rules, representations, and warranties set forth below, and communicated by authorized staff member or tour guide (“staff”). Your presence and the presence of any children under your supervision at the Center is a privilege. Failure to follow any of the rules set forth below may lead to being expelled from the Center.    

Please check the box after to each paragraph in acknowledgement:

 The Center houses and cares for exotic animals over many different lines of species.  These animals are inherently dangerous.  While contained within enclosures, their actions and behavior can be unpredictable, dangerous and/or possibly deadly.  I assume any and all risk of injury or death for myself and for any children under my supervision while at the Center. 

 

For safety, there will be at least one experienced tour guide or staff member will all tour groups.  I, and any children under my supervision, must remain with the tour guide or staff member at all times and obey his/her orders. At no time will a child under my supervision be left unattended or allowed within five feet of the enclosure of any animal.  

 

In order to walk through the Center, it may be necessary to traverse walkways, trails, natural areas, and paths (collectively ‘paths”) subject to weather patterns or that are under construction.  These paths may be uneven, contain loose gravel, potholes, and/or debris.  I, and any children under my supervision, will watch our footing.  I, and any children under my supervision, will stay away from and out of areas that are off limits.  

 

There may be an opportunity to interact with an educational animal presented by a staff member.  In these limited cases, it has been deemed lower risk to have this interaction.  

 

The animals onsite are wild and may be dangerous. Unauthorized contact could lead to serious injury or death.  I understand that crossing the tour barrier without explicit permission from a staff member is forbidden and further understand that there will be no contact with animals by myself or any children under my supervision. 

 

I understand that I, as well as any children under my supervision, shall not be allowed to taunt, tease, throw objects at, or otherwise bother the animals. This includes yelling, running, and other behaviors that might upset or overstimulate the animals. Visitors engaged in these activities or any behaviors deemed harmful to the animals by a staff member may be expelled from the Center.  

 

While at The Conservators Center, (the Center), myself or my likeness may be captured in or in on photographs and/or video footage taken by a staff member or agent of the Center.  I hereby grant the Center the irrevocable right and permission to use said photographs and/or video recordings (including audio recordings) of me while at the Center in promotional materials in print and digital formats, including, but not limited to, radio and television broadcast, advertisements, live event presentations, webcasts, websites, publications, promotional flyers, educational materials, derivative works, or for any other purpose without compensation to me.  I agree that all such photographs and/or video recordings, regardless of format, shall remain the property of the Center.  I hereby release, acquit, and forever discharge the Center, its current and former trustees, agents, officers, volunteers, and employees of the above-named entities from any and all claims, demands, rights, promises, damages, and liabilities arising out of or in connection with the use or distribution of said photographs and/or video recordings, including but not limited to any claims for invasion of privacy, appropriation of likeness, or defamation.  

 

In consideration for my admission and that of any child under my supervision, I irrevocably release, waive, discharge, and hold harmless the Center, including all employees, officers, directors, trustees, volunteers, attorneys, administrators, and insurers from any and all claims, actions, causes of action, damages, whether in law or in equity, which germinate from, arise out of, or in any way related to my visit to the Center or any activities undertaken at the Center.  If any provision of this Release is held by a court to be invalid, void, or unenforceable, the remainder of the Release shall remain in full force and effect and shall in no way be affected, impaired, or invalidated.  This Release shall be governed, where appropriate, by the laws of the State of North Carolina including all common law defenses of assumption of risk and contributory negligence. 

I state that I am more than eighteen (18) years of age and have fully read this Release, which I acknowledge to be written in terms which I understand.  I further stipulate I am entering into this Release freely and voluntarily of my own choice and without duress. 

 

In witness whereof, releaser has executed this release at Burlington, North Carolina on this day, .
