BENEFITING: Conservators' Center
The Conservators’ Center is home to six New Guinea singing dogs, a lovely little breed of wild dog native to Papua New Guinea. At sunrise and sunset, you can usually find all of our singers standing on their platforms howling with the wolves next door, which often earns a friendly roaring session from our 20 lions. When all three species start calling to one another, we call it our Conservators’ Center Chorus.
Foldo New Guinea singing dog and his daughter, Samara, live together at the Center. They have a spacious enclosure with a set of platforms that are utilized heavily for climbing, lounging, interacting with trained staff, and surveying their surroundings.
Foldo and Samara’s platforms have stood the test of time and inclement weather, but they are in need of renovation. We are asking $250* to rebuild these platforms to ensure the safety of these sweet New Guinea singing dogs and their two-legged friends. Built to our specifications, the new platforms will be able to withstand many years of use.
Please give what you can to this special cause. We encourage you to come visit us, meet our singers, and awaken your wild side!
The Conservators’ Center in Burlington, North Carolina is home to nearly 100 exotic animals representing 19 species – including more than 30 lions and tigers. This haven for wild animals in need of a home has a 3-part mission: education, conservation, and rescue.
