Wine Country Wildlife Conservancy is a licensed zoo and exotic rescue formerly known as Safari Encounters, dedicated to preserving and protecting the diverse wildlife species while promoting conservation education in the beautiful landscapes of wine country.


As a licensed initiative authorized by both the USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) and Fish and Wildlife authorities, our mission is two-fold: to offer immersive and enlightening experiences that bring people closer to the animal kingdom's wonders, and to direct proceeds towards critical rescue efforts for exotic animals in need. At Safari Encounters, we take pride in providing a loving home to more than 180 animals, including some of the world's most endangered and critically endangered species. But our commitment doesn't end there – we are looking for donors or investors to help us expand and grow our program. By joining forces with like-minded individuals and organizations, we can reach even more communities, touch more hearts, and have a greater impact on wildlife conservation. Join us on this transformative journey, where your involvement becomes a beacon of hope for these magnificent creatures and their habitats. Together, we can make a profound and lasting difference in the future of our planet's most vulnerable inhabitants.
