With utmost respect, we want to be 100% above-board,

so you know exactly what you are signing up for.

WE ARE NOT A "FOR PUBLIC ENTERTAINMENT" "ZOO"

We are a rare, DELICATE and endangered species

conservation center.

If your intent is anything other than putting the safety, well-being

conservation, then, sadly, we are NOT the facility for you to visit.
