Fragile Planet Wildlife Center is striving to become the next hidden gem of Cameron County, TX. Wildlife tourist attractions can be found throughout the Rio Grande Valley, but Fragile Planet will stand out above the rest. Fragile Planet offers visitors the rare opportunity to get up close and personal to some of the world's most beautiful species of animals.
Fragile Planet is not a mainstream tourist attraction or a zoo. We are a wildlife center specializing in the care and needs of animals from around the world. Animals arrive at Fragile Planet for a variety of reasons. Once here, they serve a very special role as ambassadors for their species.Your visit will enlighten you on the plight of a variety of species, including those that are classified as endangered or threatened.
It is our hope that you will take that information home and share it with those around you as our mission 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 stewards for our future. We want 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.
Fragile Planet Wildlife Center is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. We depend on donations from the public to continue our work providing the best care possible for the wildlife in our care. Visit our "donate" page to learn more about how you can help.
