** Unfortunately, the website has not yet been optimized for mobile users. We are working on it, and hope to be ready soon!


Established in 1987, the Centre is a registered charitable organization dedicated to contributing to the conservation of threatened and endangered species though its educational and captive propagation programs. The Centre is home to over 300 animals, such as birds of prey and bats.


Please take a few moments to look around and see what we are all about.

Use the menu to the left to learn more about the centre, as well as our educational and captive breeding programs.

Use the menu above to find out what is happening at the centre, and to learn how to reach us.



The Centre's future is in jeopardy!

Due to an open pit mine about to commence operations across the road from the centre, we are urgently seeking to relocate the facility.

Please see our News section to learn more and find out how you can help.
