“Hannah,” the Zoo's female Sumatran tiger, passed away this month at the grand old age of 16, which is the average age for tigers living in captivity.

Hannah came to the Zoo at the age of two from the Ramat Gan Safari and was part of the Zoo's endangered species breeding program.

Sumatran tigers are very rare as over the last over the last 100 years, they have lost 93 percent of their historic habitat range. Three other tiger sub-species have become extinct: the Balinese Tiger, the Caspian Tiger and the Javanese Tiger.

 Today, there are fewer than 400 Sumatran tigers are estimated to remain in the wild. This subspecies is listed as Critically Endangered on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species due to poaching, habitat loss and human-wildlife conflict. 

Over the years, Hannah and her mate, “Avigdor,” had a number of litters but only one tiger cub survived: Sylvester, who was born in 2009 and was hand-raised by zoo staff and later went to live in a zoo in southern France.
