Just came back from a visit with a group of 19 students, an offering different than any zoo/ animals situation. The guide was the most entertaining and with a serious understanding of his wild bunch! We visited with students of all ages and for the hour and a half they were totally interested. A gem hidden in Culver City, may... More

This was an amazing tour to be able to see how they rescue animals that would otherwise not survive. We got to see dancing birds, a playful bobcat and learn about so many different animals. The center also is used to educate underprivileged children and has an exposed water system that shows them how littering can affect our water. Worth... More

Great way to spend an hour and a half with young children to educate them about small animals - mainly reptiles, fish and birds, who have been rescued from the authorities or people who owned them illegally or no longer want them. Very educational and small enough for young children to see up close. Very nice people.

I have been there many times over the years when my son was younger. They host great little carnivals for Halloween, etc. There is a nominal fee and a guide takes a small group throughout the facility. They are given wildcats when found in the mtns. or lizards that people try to sneak into the country, etc. Many species to... More

The kids love this place! Educational and exciting, kids will love the large birds, reptiles, fish, and felines that this place has to offer. They even get to pet a reptile or two.... Which is always the highlight for my little ones. Nowhere near the size of a zoo, but definitely a more interactive experience than you would get at... More

This is the coolest place ever! So many amazing animals (like a mini zoo), fantastic for kids, and how can you not support a place that rescues animals? A must see/little gem in LA!

The STAR ECO Station is NOT just for kids, but for anyone open to learning about the environment through the lives of endangered animals. The exotic animals at "Eco" are throw-a-ways, brought into the country illegally, too large to keep as pets (gee Mom, I really want one of those, PLEEEEZE). The knowledgeable guides describe not only what you are... More

I visited this place about a month ago, and was pleasantly surprised by all the wildlife that's available for public viewing. It pales by comparison to a zoo, but it's intimate, and the tour provided by the docents is very informative. Sadly, I wish they had a larger viewing area for the wild cats, as they are enclosed inside glass.... More
