Get a unique view of big cats, wolves, and other exotic animals—often from just 5 feet away! Most visitors experience an “oofing,” the earth-shaking, collective roar of several lion prides. You will be equally enchanted by our smaller residents, including binturongs, singing dogs, lemurs, servals, and other rare species.


Conservators Center benefit: Lions, Tigers, and Beer!

What makes this fundraiser so unique? Before you tour our zoological park, you’ll sample food and beer pairings inspired by our animals—animals like tigers, lions, and lynxes. Even better, we’ve partnered with local restaurants and breweries like Haw River Ales, Saint Jacques, and more to bring you the best cuisine North Carolina has to offer. It’s a celebration of our wild community! You love animals—and you can help them in an exciting way! Tickets for Lions, Tigers, and Beer are $100 each—or $180 for two—and we retain all the proceeds. If you want to help support wildlife education and our residents, you’ll do so just by attending! $100 could feed a big cat for almost a week… …or provide our elderly animals with the vitamins they need to remain comfortable… …or even allow us to purchase 12 cubic feet of aspen bedding for our lemurs... while you’re enjoying delicious food & unique beers, you can feel even better knowing you’re helping the very animals you’re about to meet.
