The exotic animals at Tiger Safari have a more important role than just posing for people; they educate the public on conservation efforts. All of the park’s programs serve to educate others about the conservation needs of Earth’s wildlife in an effort to safeguard the planet’s ecosystems and the critters that live within them. With help from the park’s caretakers, lemurs, tigers, pythons, foxes, and monkeys venture to homes and picnics to celebrate birthday parties, corporate events, or graduation parties, all while trained staffers share facts about the animals’ diet and ecosystem. During safaris and camping excursions, groups of children journey through the park to catch glimpses of kangaroos, tortoises, crocodiles, and dads observed without their shirts tucked in.
