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 for a ticket to a tour at Conservators' Center. Choose between the following options:

• For $13, you get one adult (ages 12 and older) ticket for an enrichment tour of rescued wildlife (a $15 value) and a 5"x7" matted photo of one of the animals from the tour (a $12 value; a $27 total value).
• For $11, you get a child's tour ticket (a $10 value) and a 5"x7" matted photo of one of the animals from the tour (a $12 value; a $22 total value).

A nonprofit wildlife sanctuary, Conservators' Center houses 19 animal species such as lions, tigers, wolves, and ring-tailed lemurs, some of which are threatened or endangered. During the 3/4-mile feeding-and-enrichment tour walk along gravel paths, guides brandish treats, toys, and scented items to entice shyer critters to emerge. Visitors may watch the antics of Maru the binturong as she devours banana treats or spot Masufa the serval rolling around in a cinnamon-scented cardboard box or stalking feral balls of yarn.

After the tour, visitors head to the gift shop to pick out a professionally shot 5"x7" matted photo of one of the animals from the tour. Guests should be prepared to walk the 3/4-mile tour route on potentially muddy roads, so it's better 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 gift, this Groupon still offers the best deal for everyone.

Conservators Center

The seasoned tour guides at the Conservators Center, a nonprofit censervancy in Burlington, North Carolina, have had their fair share of animal adventures. It is these that help them provide guests with once-in-a-lifetime experiences with 20 different species of exotic wildlife, including more than 20 lions, tigers, and leopards.

Guided Tours allow guests to reconnect with wildlife by showing them up close and personal, and bring customers unique experiences, such as eye-to-eye experiences with tigers, and an "oofing", the Center's description for the earth-shaking lion's roar when they call to one another. On every tour, guides will "oof" to the lions, who often respond. Visitors will also get to observe wolves romping through the woods, and the discovery of lesser-known species such as servals and binturongs.

Customer Reviews

The Conservators' Center is an amazing place filled with beautiful exotic animals that you get to see from 5 feet away! It is run by caring, compassionate people who take are often the last resort for some of these animals! And they are teaching the rest of the world why it's important that we all care about these animals. What it is not is a zoo. These animals are not on display simply for our pleasure. They are here because they have been rescued, often from homes where people had the mistaken idea that owning a wild animal was a good idea. The Center takes care of these animals allows them live out their days in a great place.

It was wonderful -- the animals are beautiful and well cared for - the tour guide is charming - a great experience for all ages. They also provide a terrific service: adopt exotique animals that stupid humans have bought and tried to take care of by themselves... Thank you!!
