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.
