Tourism, Conservation, and Education at Panther Ridge

Tourists from around the world come to visit the beautiful grounds and animals at Panther Ridge Conservation Center in Palm Beach County, Florida, housing species such as cheetah, jaguar, leopard, clouded leopard, panther, ocelot, serval, and caracal. Guests are hard-pressed to pick a favorite cat.

Panther Ridge Conservation Center is a hidden gem of Palm Beach County, Florida. Wildlife tourist attractions can be found throughout the state, but Panther Ridge stands out above the rest. It offers visitors the rare opportunity to get up close and personal to some of the world’s most beautiful endangered species of cats. This intimate environment allows a direct one-on-one tourist experience.

We are delighted with our five-out-of-five star rating on TripAdvisor from visitors to the West Palm Beach area. But Panther Ridge is not a mainstream tourist attraction or a zoo. We are a conservation center specializing in the care and needs of endangered and threatened species of cat. Animals arrive at Panther Ridge for a variety of reasons. Once here, they serve a very important role as ambassadors for their species. Throughout your own personal visit, you become familiar with each individual animal’s story as well as the current status of their species in the wild.

It is our hope that our guests will take that information home and share it with others. While all tours are intimate, the Head Keeper Tour is a unique treat. Visitors delight as they witness the unique bond created between these animals and our director. This is just one of the reasons Panther Ridge is ranked among the top tourist attractions in the area by TripAdvisor.

We look forward to seeing you on your visit, and the cats are looking forward to it too!
