About Tiger World Endangered Wildlife Preserve
Tiger World was founded in 2007 with a dream to participate globally in conservation and education of endangered and threatened animals. Tiger World purchased a closed down zoo and opened to the public July 1, 2008 in Rockwell, North Carolina. Tiger World began with just a few species of cats and primates and has expanded to include over fifty-four various species, including fourteen endangered animals. Reaching over 100,000 visitors annually, including over 30,000 school kids, teaching people about endangered animals is a passion of Tiger World.
