What would the world be like without tigers? The Zoo partners with other zoos on a Tiger Species Survival Plan (SSP) so we never have to find out. In addition to maintaining a healthy tiger population in zoos, the Tiger SSP has launched a Tiger Conservation Campaign to raise awareness and funds for wild tiger conservation. As the Coordinator for the Malayan Tiger SSP, Zoo Curator Mike Dulaney believes that “Working cooperatively with our colleagues both in U.S. Zoos and in tiger range countries provides us with the best chance to ensure that these magnificent cats do not forever disappear.”
