Conservation Station is the main part of Rafiki's Planet Watch. It's an in-door area used as the parks official veterinary and conservation headquarters. It is actually a back-stage area where you get to see Disney's animal experts at work. Here you can meet wildlife experts who regularly present different animals to the public, such as snakes and tarantulas. As you walk around the open area, you can see into the veterinary areas where you'll see people working.  You'll also see some ongoing projects, and smaller animals on display. 

Included in the Conservation Station is an area for new born animals, however you'll only find small animals here. Vets often walk around answering questions.

The contents of the Conservation Station changes regularly and depends on what the park currently has going on. 

Guests have mixed views on this area. Some love it, some hate it. It's worth visiting at least once to see what its all about and how Disney look after their animals.
