This week on “Tu for Two,” Chela meets lions, tigers and singing dogs with her friends at Central Carolina Women in Business. Getting up close and personal with big cats and a bunch of other amazing animals at the Conservators Center in Alamance County makes for an exciting — and informative — trip! The center is just 45 minutes from Chapel Hill, and home to over 20 species of animals ranging from Arctic foxes to ring-tailed lemurs. Visitors to the center are encouraged to learn about and connect with the animals who reside there, and there’s certainly plenty to learn. For example, did you know that big cats don’t necessarily roar? These majestic beasts actually go “oof!” — and their “oofs” are creating crucial animal ambassadors in our community one visitor at a time.
Thank you @alamancechamber, @ConservatorsNC and the Central Carolina Women in Business group! I’m grateful to be part of this group of cool ladies (like @chelatu and @BetsBees!) who do fun things to celebrate businesses in our region. 🦁 pic.twitter.com/KT8ja9GA92
