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. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
The public tours at the Conservators Center are fully guided and offer a great deal of up close adventure. Tours are available by reservation only and feature a variety of different tour themes. The prices range from $14 to $26, depending upon the tour you select.
The Conservators Center is located at 676 E Hughes Mill Rd, Burlington, NC 27217. Learn more on the official website!
