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.
I want to showcase our animal kingdom. It runs from Tuesday New Zealand time and is weekly. You can join in anytime at all over the week. You can post your furry friends (babies), wild animals, birds, insects and butterflies. Even reptiles are welcome.
Just use this logo and link back to this blog.
I look forward to seeing all the different animals around the world
Thanks for visiting.
