How Many Tigers?

Tourist Interactions?

Cages/Enclosures

  • Cages ranged all along a walkway with two to four cages joining into one enclosure

  • Each enclosure contained a pond for bathing though sometimes the water was dirty or empty depending on time of year

  • Water always provided somewhere

  • Grass or natural vegetation (though grass could die out in summer months due to lack of rain/water)

  • All outdoor enclosures containted enrichment items such as tyres, papier mache toys etc

  • Also contained caves/platforms to climb/hide in

  • Cages all had a platform

Physical & Mental Health

Physical

  • Most tigers were physically fine apart from a few of the older tigers and a couple of tigers born cross eyed

  • Multiple tigers sharing one cage area

  • Few injuries though some scratches and bites in tigers that lived with others

Mental

  • A few tigers seen pacing but not so many given the large number of animals and this pacing was potentially due to other factors such as excitement/curiosity or aggression towards another tiger kept inside.

 

What we are doing to help
