This desert zoo/wildlife museum north of Los Angeles welcomes any age, from little kids to the grandparents, and offers a learning experience in the felines themselves, their habits & natural habitats. Not only that, but kids can also hear the valuable lesson in conservation as they this feline center dedicated to the protection and preservation of the world's endangered felines.
Kids can come face to face with some of their favourite felines, including leopards, jaguars, ocelots, fishing cats, snow leopards, and margays, to name a just few! There are even peacocks too! In fact, you can get as close as 5 feet away from these beautiful creatures, including the very rare Amur leopard.
During your day out at this conservation center, you are welcome to just wander around at your own pace. There are informative plaques that describe each cat species in detail, and there are always docents to answer your questions.
You can ask about their breeding programs too which are world-renowned and we partner with other zoos across the country and the world.
