Committed to Saving Species

White Oak promotes endeavors in conservation through innovative science, education, training, and collaborations. We are committed to providing conservation options for the species that need them the most. We invite you to explore our 17,000-acre haven for people, animals, and ideas.


In light of the COVID-19 outbreak, we want you to know that the White Oak Conservation team continues to provide the highest quality care for the animals.  The rhinos, cranes, and giraffes will never know of their caretaker’s concerns for social distancing and hand washing!  

To ensure the health and well-being of our team and our guests, White Oak has suspended tours and events at this time. We already miss you and hope to reschedule in the near future. 

In the meantime, we encourage you to follow us on Facebook and Instagram and sign up for our e-newsletter for updates. Stay tuned for upcoming posts with special content that will help keep you connected with White Oak’s conservation work, like this video of our new Florida panther kittens.

Stay safe, everyone, and we’ll see you soon.

Say hello to the newest members of the White Oak family! As you may have heard, On January 22nd, 2020, two young male Florida panthers arrived at White Oak from ZooTampa at Lowry Park in Tampa, FL. The kittens were hand-raised at the zoo after a mysterious neurological disorder left their mother unable to care for them. You can learn more about them here.

Want to see them? Come for a tour or sign up for our public events coming up in March! Visit White Oak.
