About Fragile Planet
Who are we?
Fragile Planet is a team of wildlife and education experts that dedicate ourselves to being a positive influence in our community for the conservation of both wildlife and wild places.
What are we?
Fragile Planet Wildlife Center is first and foremost an educational outreach organization. Our organization travels to various locations conducting educational, yet entertaining, presentations about wild animals and wild places and how we can preserve them. With help from our educational animal ambassadors, we're able to provide an exciting, engaging, and educational program that elicits a positive response from our guests in wanting to learn and do more for our environment.
Why are we?
Fragile Planet exists to show and share our passion about nature; we want to introduce our students to life that often-times goes forgotten about and to teach them about our connection to it and the importance of that connection. Just like us, as people/humans, earth has lungs, it has veins, and it has a heartbeat and its up to people like us to share those connections and how they function because the preservation of nature is the preservation of ourselves.
Educational outreach programs are just a building block as to what we aim to achieve by becoming an open-to-the-public educational wildlife center. Time and time again we are reminded just how much our organization is appreciated and needed, especially in the Rio Grande Valley region. We look forward to our continuous trek forward in bringing that wish to fruition for our community.
The mission of Fragile Planet Wildlife Center is to connect people to the natural world through creating experiences that engage our guests, provide innovative educational opportunities, and instill a passion in the next generation as responsible stewards for the future.
Our vision is to inspire our guests to love, engage with, and to protect animals and their habitats in the wild. Through this we will continue the fight for conservation.
