STAR ECO STATION
The STAR Eco Station is an environmental science museum, an exotic wildlife rescue center, and a haven
for endangered and illegally-trafficked exotic animals confiscated by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
The STAR Eco Station has grown tremendously in the past 14 years and a second location has been opened
Erick, Sr. and Katya Bozzi, and their children, Erick, Jr. and Katiana Bozzi, founded the STAR Eco Station in Culver City, CA, in 1997 as a division of STAR, Inc. Working in collaboration with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and other government and environmental organizations, STAR Eco Station provides a last chance for illegal or abandoned at-risk exotic wildlife, as well as environmental education outreach programs in over 40 California school districts.
Visitors to the STAR Eco Station experience amazing hands-on lessons in ecology and environmentalism through a breathtaking encounter with rare birds, exotic reptiles, wildcats and ocean life in a tropical jungle setting. Environmental partnerships enhance the station with discovery exhibits from organizations such as the US Fish and Wildlife feature, Surfrider and Santa Monica BayKeeper's unique Storm Drain display and our walk-thru Kelp Forest.
The STAR Eco Station's mission is "Preservation through Education." It carries out this mission every day by educating students, visitors to the STAR Eco Station and community members about the preservation of our environment and the interdependence of all living things.
