Conservators Center

I had the opportunity to meet Kasey Thornton, the Communications Supervisor for the Conservators Center, who gave me a behind-the-scenes look at volunteers and highly trained staff caring for its animals. The center is privately owned but offers tours to the public to help educate and grow public awareness. The center has rescued 19 species of exotic animals, including lions, tigers and wolves.


The leopards are occupying a shift space, which is an enclosure constructed to house the animals for a short period of time while they eat, to allow volunteers and keepers to enter the main habitat and clean safely, says Kasey Thornton, the communications supervisor for the Conservators Center.
