The PRESERVE – connecting people with animals and nature Feed a giraffe. Walk through the “Australian Outback” with free ranging kangaroos. See the birds. Watch elephants and exotic creatures. Relax, play and enjoy nature. Touch barnyard animals at Critter Corner. Unwind and rest in our comfortable, scenic relaxation stations. Learning about animals and their conservation is fun when you meet our Animal Ambassadors. The more we learn about animals and the more we understand about the need for their conservation the more likely we are to act to help save them from extinction. Contact = Caring = Conservation
