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. 

Conservation is at the very heart of our philosophy here at Fragile Planet Wildlife Center. It, by definition, is the prevention of wasteful use of our resources. So, how do we help prevent the wastefulness of our resources? We do that through educational outreach programs which introduces people with the animals from around the world that the act of wasting resources affects. We take those opportunities to promote experiences and connections that better touch the hearts of our guests and students and create a stronger response from those opportunities. But, conservation can and does go above and beyond that. It is also perceived as the preservation of species. And although Endangered Species are the focal point of most conservation-focused education and programs, they aren't the only ones in jeopardy of losing their homes and being illegally trafficked. ALL species are at risk, regardless of their conservation status. Fragile Planet works with a few species towards, at least, preserving them in a captive environment and some of which are of endangered status. Preserving animals in an environment under human care creates a museum of living species whom you may never have the opportunity to see in the wild, who are no longer in the wild, or may one day bolster enough in numbers and genetic representation to qualify for release programs. It is here we want to share with you some of our high-lighted projects and accomplishments.
