“Thought to occupy less than seven percent of their original range, today’s tiger populations are threatened by habitat loss and degradation, poaching, tiger-human conflict, loss of prey, and other factors. Bali, Caspian, Javan, and South China tigers (i.e., four of nine subspecies) have all disappeared from the wild just in the past hundred years. Amur, Sumatran, and Malayan tigers are all thought to number fewer than 500 individuals in the wild.”
- Tiger SSP Tiger Conservation Campaign
This year, your Toronto Zoo is even more committed to supporting tiger conservation, and funds raised through our 2022 TZ For Tigers Campaign will do just that. In honour of the Year of the Tiger, your donations will support the Toronto Zoo’s ongoing efforts to conserve wild tiger populations, as well as support the tigers in our care.
Funds from the campaign will be split, with 50% supporting the expansion of our Amur tiger habitat and 50% supporting the Tiger SSP Tiger Conservation Campaign, an organization that supports three endangered tiger species including Amur and Sumatran and raises awareness about wild tigers.
The tigers at your Toronto Zoo engage visitors each day, raising awareness and funding for their wild counterparts. Donate today and help make an impact in support of tigers.
- Expanding the existing Amur tiger habitat will provide new opportunities to explore and additional space outside for our three Amur tigers; Vasili, Mazy and Mila
- With the additional space comes new and exciting enrichment opportunities that will stimulate our tigers’ natural behaviours and allow them to follow their natural instincts
- Accredited zoos across North America are mobilizing to raise awareness about wild tigers and funding for their survival. The Tiger Conservation Campaign is coordinated by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums’ Tiger Species Survival Plan
- The Tiger SSP’s Tiger Conservation Campaign supports projects that directly address threats to wild tigers
