A recognized leader in Species Survival Plan (SSP) breeding programs for Malayan tigers, three male Malayan tiger cubs, Jaya, Bunga, and Penari, were born here at Palm Beach Zoo in 2011. Fewer than 250 Malayan tigers have been estimated to be left in the wild.
In March 2015, we opened our "Tiger River" habitat, adding an extra exhibit yard to the Henry & Charlotte Kimelman Tiger Habitat.
We thank lead corporate sponsor Braman Motorcars Palm Beach & Jupiter for their multi-year commitment which helped us double the size of the original exhibit, as well as, the amount of behind-the-scenes space for tiger housing.
Their ongoing support of the health and wellness, education, and daily operations of the four Malayan tigers that call Palm Beach Zoo home, is pivotal in helping us expand our role as Malayan tiger ambassadors.
