Khon Kaen Zoo
Khon Kaen Zoo is one of the recent additions to the Zoological Parks Organisation (ZPO) zoos in Thailand. Like the others under their care, this zoo is of a much higher standard than the standards found elsewhere in Thailand. The zoo contained a number of other animals including bears, lions, hippos, various bird species and a wide range of ungulates. All of these appeared to have large, spacious, species-specific enclosures and no hands-on interactions between animals and the public.
How Many Tigers?
Two separate tiger enclosures observed
One contained three Bengal tigers, the second, a single white tiger - there appears to be a male and female white tiger who are rotated between this second area
Enclosures were large and spacious each surrounded with an empty moat but also containing a pond for the tigers to swim in
Contained multiple enrichment items including logs, rope and platforms
Enrichment programme in the form of public feeding
Plenty of places for the tigers to hide from the public

What we are doing to help
At this time we are raising awareness for the situation of the captive tigers in Thailand through education of the public and through a number of different petitions.
