Noemi Cruz, Staff Writer

The Fragile Planet Wildlife Park opened for business in 2021 here in Los Fresnos. The FPWF is an animal sanctuary that has become a big joy for valley residents to look forward to.

The Fragile Planet started as a mobile educational effort in upstate New York. The owners of this organization decided to move to South Texas because it is the home of one of their beloved animals, the ocelot. 

Popularity quickly grew for this wildlife park as it gave visitors a chance to not only see but interact with exotic animals from all over the world. Some of these animals include camels, iguanas, otters, and sloths. They also have what they call their “Amphibian Lab” which houses endangered frogs, toads, and salamanders. 

FPWP offers tours of their grounds with chances to feed some of their animals. The Wildlife Alive tour, which is $50 per person, gives visitors the once in a lifetime experience to get up close and in touch with these animals. 

Fragile Planet opens for their Wildlife Alive tour at 10 am and has Mini tours at 2, 3, and 4 pm. Tours are only offered Tuesdays and Thursdays. If you want to have a memorable experience, book a tour as soon as possible on their website You can also follow them on Facebook and Instagram to keep up with the latest information.
