Have you ever wondered how Fossil Rim Wildlife Center came to be, or how we have changed and grown over the last 30+ years? Our history is an interesting story of one man’s passion, a couple’s call to conservation, and the sustaining efforts of many dedicated people, whose love for animals brought them to a small central Texas town to fight on the behalf of endangered animals.

Board Members/Management Staff

Who is responsible for the day-to-day management and the long-term vision for Fossil Rim? Our operations are managed by senior directors and executives, overseen by a Board of Directors whose members are from around the country.


Fossil Rim is the first facility of its kind to have been accredited by the American Zoo and Aquarium Association. Fossil Rim Wildlife Center participates in a worldwide network of wildlife conservation organizations working to restore the delicate balance between people, animals, and the environment. Fossil Rim Wildlife Center represents over 1,000 animals, 50 species of native and non-native animals living peacefully at the ~1,800-acre center.
