Kisma Preserve is a donor funded 501-c-3 organization dedicated to exotic animal care and education for over 30 years.


The Kisma Preserve organization firmly believes that knowledge is strength. The planet we live in is in a rapid state of ecological decline. Many wild animal species are faced with extinction within our lifetime or sooner. Kisma Preserves’ personal belief is that all individuals matter. On a global population scale does one individual matter? Probably not but that life certainly matters to that individual! On the one hand animals in the wild are facing extinction usually because they are losing habitats within ecosystems which are disappearing. On the other hand there are many more non-domestic animals in captivity than there are licensed and qualified places for them to live. What is the answer? It has to, at the very beginning, start with knowledge. By caring deeply and giving a home to these unique animals we open a door to understanding a species. When someone looks through that door and begins to care about a species the next logical step is the habitat and the ecosystem and ultimately our world. Kisma Preserve cares for each creature as an individual and hopes, perhaps idealistically, that will inspire others to care on some level as well.
