International Tiger Day

July 29, 2014 - 09:00am to 04:00pm

An estimated 450 Amur tigers remain in the wild.

Oregon Zoo Amur tiger Mikhail serves as an ambassador for his wild counterparts, which are quickly losing habitat and room to roam. International Tiger Day is an opportunity for visitors to celebrate and learn about these extraordinary predators, which aren't that different from your domestic kitties at home. Throughout the day, keeper staff and volunteers will be on hand to provide visitors with actions they can take to protect tigers throughout their range.
