TALLAHASSEE, Fla.  — The Wildlife Conservation Center, formally known as the Avian Biodiversity Center, now has a new home.

The wildlife center is a non-profit that houses over a dozen threatened animals from lemurs to toucans.

The WCC recently made a big move from Tallahassee to Jefferson County which will allow them to take in more animals.

Aside form taking care of animals, another purpose of the WCC is to inspire people in the community to learn about wildlife and the environment.

"We offer guided tours and lemur interactions like this. We are open to the public and offer these things because we want to get people inspired in person and get people to make changes to their daily lives that help the environment," said Ryan Reins, Executive Director of the Wildlife Conservation Center.

The center is run only on donations. If you would like to donate or schedule a tour, click here.
