Female Sumatran Tiger arrives at Wellington Zoo
Wellington Zoo has recently welcomed a young female Sumatran Tiger, three-year old Senja, into its collection.
The Tiger, who has travelled from Mogo Zoo in NSW, can now be viewed in the Zoo’s Tiger habitat in the Asia precinct.
Senja will live next to Wellington Zoo’s male Sumatran Tiger, Rokan, while another male will arrive at the Zoo later this year to form a breeding pair with Senja.
Commenting on the new arrival, Wellington Zoo Chief Executive, Karen Fifield stated "Wellington Zoo is proud to be part of the regional breeding programme for Sumatran Tigers.
"Senja is one of most genetically important Sumatran Tigers in the region, and she will make a valuable addition to the conservation breeding programme.”
Sumatran Tigers are critically endangered, with less than 500 remaining in the wild. Wellington Zoo is proud to support 21st Century Tiger, a zoo-based conservation initiative that supports wild tiger populations around the world.
Wellington Zoo is New Zealand's first Zoo, established in 1906, and is Wellington’s oldest conservation organisation. Home to over 500 native and exotic animals, Wellington Zoo became a charitable trust in 2003.
Wellington Zoo became the world’s first carboNZero certified zoo in May 2013.
Wellington Zoo is an accredited member of the Zoo and Aquarium Association Australasia and a member of the World Association of Zoos and Aquariums.
