    Not what I expected, on the web site they don’t show that the animals are all in cages,some to small in my opinion for the size of the animal. I mean I didn’t think that they would be running free (even though I wish they were) but like I’ve said before,(see review for Columbia zoo) large wild animals in small confined cages/spaces just doesn’t do it for me anymore, I was very disappointed. I thought there would be large open areas for them. The animals look sad and I felt sad for them. The inside of the cages look very unkept. Don’t get me wrong, I appreciate the work they’re trying to do there, because, if these animals weren’t there they would probably be dead, and I know that it costs a lot of money to run a place like this, but still, there must be a better way.

    This place is better then any zoo! Tour guide Kim was great and knew her stuff. Took the Twilight tour so we even got to see the animals that were nocturnal as well. Would recommend for all ages.

    What a fantastic facility! You will never go to another zoo again once you have experienced these fine animals and excellent tour guides! Wait until you hear the “oofing” for yourself. The ground will shake and so will you. Absolutely fantastic. Only an hour drive from Raleigh and well worth every second of the road trip.

    I’m a little biased as I’m related to the director but The Conservators Center is a very unique experience. You will be closer to these animals than any zoo. Close enough that you can hear them chuffle, see the details in their fur or claws, and truly experience these animals. You’ll also see they are active and interactive with you because they are happy, curious, and lively. Every single person who works or volunteers at The Conservators’ Center has a deep seated love of what they do. They also care greatly about the welfare and health of every single animal and it shows in everything they do. From their work to how they talk about the animals. You can always tell how passionate someone is about a subject, person or animal by how energetic and knowledgeable they are. What’s unique about The Conservators’ Center is that they focus not just on rescue, but on education and responsible policy making in local, state and federal government. They work with NCSU Vet School and plethora of other people who recognize what they are doing and contribute back. Your experience here won’t be limited to “oh look at the pretty animals”. You’ll learn about where they came from, who they are (animals have personalities too!), and much more. It’s an experience you can’t get anywhere else.

    This place was absolutely amazing. I cannot say enough about the tour you get ( I went to the Adult Winter in the Wild tour). The tour guides are very knowledgeable, and do a great job interacting with you and the animals. The animals themselves are obviously well taken care of…I highly recommend this place!
