Pepper Family Wildlife Center

Pepper Family Wildlife Center is now open! This renovated home for lions and big cats encourages species-specific activity while offering awe-inspiring views of majestic wildlife. At the center, guests can explore the natural behaviors and characteristics of the resident species—African lions, snow leopards, Canadian lynx, and red pandas—and learn about the conservation issues threatening their wild populations.

Commitment to Care

Animals may not be visible at all times. To promote positive animal welfare, we provide animals with choices. They can choose to spend time in areas that are out of public view.
