Palm Beach Big Cat Wildlife Attraction

Mei the clouded leopardPanther Ridge Conservation Center is a unique South Florida attraction offering private and group tours of over a dozen endangered big cats. Many of the cats found at Panther Ridge have been rescued from abuse, neglect, and abandonment. Nestled in the center of Palm Beach County this attraction is unlike any zoo. It’s a much more intimate experience where you will not only learn about each species of cat, but also learn the personal history of each of these magnificent predators.

Your personal tour guide is there to answer any questions you have all while you stand within a few feet of Cheetahs, Ocelots, Clouded Leopards, Servals, Jaguars and many more. Very few wildlife attractions offer such a close encounter, to such a wide variety of animals. So if your in the West Palm Beach area and looking for an attraction that won’t break the bank, help threatened and endangered animals, and provides a little bit of education mixed with fun, call and book a tour today!

New Wish List Item – A GoPro Camera

goproAs you know, our clouded leopards are nocturnal creatures. They do most of their activities at night. In order to properly monitor them and make sure they are getting enough exercise, and enrichment, we need to be able to video them at night. So, we’ve added a GoPro camera to our wishlist.

The GoPro camera will be durable enough to withstand the potential “smacking” the clouded leopards may give it. It will also offer us high resolution video of our clouded leopards, which we will share on our web site and on facebook.

If you’d like to help out, please follow this link to Contact us if you need more information. 

Thanks for all your support!

Brandy has a new home

Brandy the CougarThis 7 year old cougar came to us from the West coast of Florida where she was set to be put down. Brandy was illegally purchased when she was just a cub. Her owners had no knowledge about how to handle a cougar cub. They gave her up as a 2 year old, and she has not been interacted with since that time. We were told she was an aggressive cat, but she has proven to us to be just the opposite.

Panther Ridge is very pleased to say she has found her forever home with us.

Welcome home Brandy!
