Mission: EFBC''s Feline Conservation Center was founded and dedicated to the preservation and propagation of rare and endangered felines through breeding, research, and education. EFBC/FCC participates in cooperative breeding projects with zoos worldwide.
Programs: EFBC's Feline Conservation Center currently houses 16 species of wild cats from the small margay to the large tiger. Our center affords the public an opportunity to view these animals. The facility is open every day EXCEPT Wednesday, and there is a small fee for general admission. The enclosures are designed in natural habitat type settings which allow the viewing public to see many rare and unknown cats from around the world.
The term conservation is often used loosely. There are very few true conservation facilities, EFBC is one that does it right. Their focus is directed at preserving the most endangered species of wild cat and educating the public on all facets of saving these magnificent creatures. I have been very impressed with the staff and care of the animals in my visits to EFBC. They are open to all ages, so getting the youth involved at an early age is very important. I recommend them highly and they will have my continued support.
