A lion’s roar can be heard from up to 5 miles.
Imagine hearing it from 5 feet away!
An “oofing” at the Conservators Center is an experience you have to feel to believe. It’s the earth-shaking, collective roar of several lion prides when our guides call out to them on tours. Our lions rarely ignore the primal urge to respond. When our wolves and New Guinea singing dogs join in, this wild "Conservators Center chorus" leaves visitors stunned and amazed.
These and other thrilling experiences are possible at the Conservators Center, just north of Burlington, NC. Visitors are guaranteed a unique and up-close view, often from just 5 feet away!
Although most visitors come to meet our big cats, many are equally enthralled by our wolves and lemurs, and some lesser-known species, such as servals, binturongs, jungle cats, and New Guinea singing dogs.
Our conservancy depends on the devotion of staff and volunteers, the enthusiasm of our visitors, and the generosity of animal-loving donors near and far. Please take a moment to browse our fundraisers, find one that speaks to you, and give what you can to this special cause.
