Animal Friend of the Week: A Sumatran Tiger

In the wild

IUCN: Critically endangered

Tigers are solitary animals, with males and females only coming together for mating. Cubs stay with their mother and have no contact with their father.

Sumatran Tigers are the smallest of the five remaining sub-species, and are found on the Indonesian island of Sumatra. They are critically endangered due to habitat loss and illegal hunting, and there are believed to be less than 500 surviving in the wild.

Wellington Zoo is proud to support 21st Century Tiger, a zoo-based conservation initiative that supports wild tiger populations around the world.
