What You'll Get
The call of the wild is like a call from an elderly grandparent: though you can’t quite make out what’s being said, you feel better about yourself when you answer. Pick up nature's phone with today's Groupon to the Conservators' Center. Choose between the following options:
- For $13, you get one adult ticket (ages 12 and up) for an enrichment tour of rescued wildlife (up to a $15 value) and one matted 5"x7" photo of an animal of your choice (a $12 value).
- For $11, you get a child's tour ticket (up to a $10 value) and one matted 5"x7" animal photo (a $12 value).
A nonprofit wildlife sanctuary, the Conservators' Center houses animals representing 19 species, such as lions, tigers, wolves, and ring-tailed lemurs. The feeding and enrichment tour walk guests through the compound, allowing rare up-close glimpses of these creatures, some of which are threatened or endangered. The guides present treats and toys and sport scent enrichments, so even shyer critters emerge for a sniff. Visitors may watch the antics of Maru the binturong as she’s enticed with banana treats or spot Masufa, the serval rolling around in a cinnamon-scented cardboard box or searching for feral balls of yarn. After the beastly adventure, visitors head to the gift shop to pick one matted 5"x7" professional photo of their favorite animal to take home.
Often rescued from unpleasant circumstances, these animals find a luxurious and caring environment at the Conservators’ Center. The dedicated, expert staff assists worldwide efforts to preserve these species through its responsible-captive-breeding program and educates the local community about these mammals. The comfort of the creatures is paramount, and because their quarters are spacious, guests should be prepared to walk the 3/4-mile tour route on potentially muddy roads, meaning it's best to wear sturdy shoes rather than open-toe sandals or bulky monster-truck-shaped slippers.
Conservators' Center members, college students, and military personnel receive discounts on tour admission, but with the included photo, this Groupon still offers the best deal for everyone.
