Roar with tigers

Meet our tigers
and their keepers
We have three tigers at the Zoo and this weekend we’re celebrating all of them with enrichments. On both days, see tigers enjoy giant toys, whipped cream and meat shanks! Scheduled enrichments and training demonstrations are at 9 am, 11 am and 1:30 pm. There will also be unscheduled enrichments throughout the day.

Why we all love enrichments
Why give enrichments to animals? They're yummy, but they're also great mental stimulation and help with diet, dental care and more.
Hands-on activities

Every day we'll have fun tiger activities to do around the Asian Forest Sanctuary!
