The Feline Conservation Center at the Exotic Breeding Feline Compound will hold its first Twilight Tour of 2010 at 5:30 p.m. Saturday, April 24. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. Admission is $15 per person (18 years of age and above ONLY – no exceptions). Those who pay their tickets ahead of time can enter early at 5:00 p.m., avoiding the lines.
Twilight Tour guests are promised fun surprises at this popular event. Enrichment items, “toys,” will be given to feline residents to pique their interest, as evening is the most active time of day for cats, as well as providing amusing entertainment for the center’s visitors.
Felines not ordinarily on exhibit to the general public are also available for viewing, including rare Pallas’s cats, Fishing cats, Margays, and “Caesar” the tiger.
Twilight Tours are an integral part of EFBC’s public awareness and educational efforts to promote endangered species preservation and conservation. Visitors are given a chance to see one of the world’s largest collections of rare wild feline species during their most active period and are witness to animal behaviors not ordinarily seen during normal zoo experiences.
EFBC will use all the proceeds from the event to continue improvements around the center as well as continued construction and maintenance projects to benefit animal habitats.
The EFBC’s Feline Conservation Center is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of wild feline species from all over the world. The center houses over 70 rare felines representing almost half of the known wild feline species.
Guests can visit the EFBC and view the large and familiar Jaguars, Leopards and Tiger as well as smaller and lesser known species like Southeast Asian Fishing Cats, Pallas’s Cats, Margays and many more. Participating in worldwide captive breeding management programs the center works with other zoos and breeding facilities in an effort to repopulate endangered feline species.
