Wildlife should be in the Wild

Education

  • We believe the ideal home for wildlife is in the wild.
  • We believe it is critical to conserve their native habitats.
  • We believe wild animals should not be kept as pets.
  • We believe captive breeding should ONLY be done in accordance with Species Survival plans.
  • We believe all wild animals, both captive and in their native habitats, deserve to be treated with respect and not exploited for entertainment and commercial purposes.

Public Tours

Twilight Tours

Coming out for a tour is a great way to learn more about the animals that call Carolina Tiger Recue home. We offer many different types of tours.  Public tours are great for adults and families. Twilight tours are for adults only (18 years of age and older). Tiger Tales are a perfect option if you want to bring out really young children. Find the tour that is right for you and enjoy a walk through the sanctuary.

For all tours, tickets must be purchased in advance.

Alissa has been a delight to be around, and we love her upbeat personality and positive attitude! She has not only excelled in animal care, Alissa has helped new volunteers in that area learn the daily routine, how to clean enclosures and prepare food for the kinkajous. Alissa has also encouraged her students to make enrichment! They students have crafted some of the awesome holiday-themed creations we have used for our enrichment tours. Please help us thank Alissa for her dedication, leadership and creative energy to help the staff and animals!
