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.
