    Our donation of paintings, made possible through animal-enriching activities, are sent to the Laguna Atiscosa Wildlife Refuge as a way to fund field research and protection measures of native Ocelot populations.
  2. Education
    Fragile Planet Wildlife Center brings exciting and educational programs and presentations to various schools, libraries, colleges, and community events. Our diverse collection allows for up-close and awe-inspiring learning opportunities.
  3. Preservation
    Through the rehabilitation of native injured, orphaned, and displaced wildlife, Fragile Planet helps preserve our native fauna by releasing these animals back into the wild.
We Bring the WILD to You!
We offer a multitude of programs to learn from!
The opportunity to touch, to see, the to experience not only makes learning FUN and EXCITING, but it's been proven to help students, of all ages, retain information being taught more efficiently and effectively. We look forward to being able to provide these opportunities throughout the state of New York and beyond.

*Please note that we do NOT allow any public contact with any of our native animals, endangered or threatened species, primates, or felids. Contact is limited to supervised interaction with non-dangerous, non-protected wildlife only.

    The founder of Fragile Planet operates as a member of "All Species Consulting". Because of this we are able to offer opportunities for other facilities to learn and grow in regards to the care of a variety of species. If we are unable to be of assistance we can forward you to another consultant that can.
