This Zoo In North Carolina Has Animals That You May Have Never Seen In Person Before

Kids of all ages (including those over 18!) love a good zoo visit. We’re fortunate in North Carolina to have a variety of zoos and animal encounters right here in our own back yard. But there’s one zoo that specializes in species from around the globe – and you’ll want to see these awesome creatures in person! The Conservators Center, located in Burlington, is home to more than 80 animals. What’s more: this isn’t your ordinary zoo… if you want to see the animals, you can take a public tour and learn about the history of each one. Take a peek below at some of the awesome creatures found at this unique zoological park.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
