Hannah is still waiting for a companion

Dear Sumatran tiger supporters,

Following the sad passing of our male Sumatran tiger, Avigdor, due to kidney failure, we are awaiting a new male to continue this breeding and conservation program.

The Sumatran Tiger conservation program is adminstered by the European Association of Zoos Endangered Species Program (EEP) and our request for a new male has been submitted to the international committee who monitor the international studbook and decide - based on genetic suitability, available facilities and transfer arrangements – which animals will be moved between participating institutions. The process has reached the stage where the EEP coordinator is collecting surveys from all participating insitutions as to facilities available in each, numbers and genetic profiles so that a decision can be made about which individuals to move between institutions. This process is likely to take some months and we hope to be able to provide you with a more exciting report next time.

In the meantime, we are doing our best to keep Hannah’s spirits up by providing her with a range of enrichment activities to keep her active and healthy. See the video below to see how we do this.

Thank you for your continued support of this program which is trying to ensure the future of the Sumatran tiger species (only around 400 remain).
