Behind the Scenes

Our purpose is to connect our guests with the animals in our care in a respectful and mutually meaningful way.

Relationship-building with wildlife is imperative as human activities increasingly affect the welfare and survival of wild species. Safe and controlled up-close experiences and interactions have a profound and lasting impact, an experience that begins with awe and ends with empathy. To encourage eco-friendly behaviour and actions, we need you to feel personally invested- you need to genuinely care.

Animal Care

Advance booking required!

$100.00 per person. There is a minimum requirement of 2 people and a maximum of 4 per session, though special arrangements can be made. For minors under 18 years of age, accompanied by a participating adult, there is a 50% discount! Some age restrictions do apply with certain animals.

Guests are welcome to take pictures, but videos are not permitted.





BEHIND THE SCENES

Enjoy time with our professional staff, as they introduce you to three animals in their care. Includes all-day admission into the park. Please note, the minimum age to feed the large predators is 10. Experiences may vary, as all animals have the freedom of choice to participate.
Program length is approximately 45-60 minutes.

There are a variety of animals and interactions available, from socializing with lemurs, to feeding one of our large tigers! A truly unforgettable experience for those that love animals or have an interest in wildlife care and conservation.
