The Malayan tiger habitat at the Palm Beach Zoo & Conservation Society is undergoing construction to more than double in size, as the Zoo announces its newest corporate sponsor, Braman Motorcars Palm Beach & Jupiter. Through a multi-year commitment as lead corporate sponsor, Braman Motorcars will support the Zoo’s tiger health and wellness, education and daily operations in the expanded exhibit habitat. The Zoo’s two Malayan tigers, male Keemasan Mata and female Berapi Api, both reside in the Australia/Asia section of the Zoo, which is where the new habitat will be located. Construction began at the beginning of 2014, and is expected to be completed by the end of the year. Zoo officials are hopeful Mata and Berapi will have tiger cubs, and the two tigers have been paired since February through a breeding recommendation made by the Tiger Species Survival Plan (SSP) of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA).
