LOUISBURG, Kan. — The Cedar Cove Feline Conservatory and Education Center in Louisburg, Kansas, focuses on caring for and preserving wildlife species and their habitats.
That includes seven Bengal tigers, along with lynx, bobcats, lions, wolves, a jaguar and more.
The conservatory's current property is about 10 acres, with 3 of those acres set aside for the animals.
But after acquiring an additional 126 acres, the conservatory plans to expand so that the animals have more room.
All of the animals are cared for by volunteers. Much of the wildlife that visitors see on tours were rescued. Some were house pets, and others were found on the side of the road.
The staff are well-versed on the stories of these animals and can educate visitors on all they would want to know about the wildlife.
Tours are available beginning at 10 a.m. on Saturdays and Sundays, running every half hour.
Tickets are $18 for adults and $12 for children.
For private tours during the week, call the conservatory at 913-837-5515. For more information about Cedar Cove Feline Conservatory and Education Center, visit its website.
