Redesign the Amur Tiger Habitat

After the birth of our tiger cubs on November 25, 2017, the Zoo asked for your support to bring in an architect to help us design a new tiger habitat. Your support was overwhelming! And because of your support, we were able to showcase our habitat design to Pam Hope Werth, a longtime Zoo friend. She pledged the single largest gift ever given to the Zoo – $1 million in support of opening the new habitat for our 100th Birthday Celebration in 2022.

NOW WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT! This is where your support matters more than ever before: every dollar donated will be matched up to $1 million! The new tiger habitat we envision, with a greatly expanded footprint, educational ranger station, glass viewing windows, and an elevated walkway for our tigers to move between enclosures, is estimated to cost us $2.5 million. If you can help us match Pam Werth’s extremely generous donation, we’ll be more than halfway there.
