We're currently home to three Sumatran tigers - Fabi, Shakira and Lucu. This subspecies, the smallest of all the tiger species, is listed as Critically Endangered, with as few as 400 individuals reported to be living in the wild today. Captive and wild populations in Sumatra are protected and managed and we're part of the European Endangered species breeding Programme (EEP) for Sumatran tigers.
 

How do I adopt a tiger?

First choose the adoption package you wish to purchase from the options below and then make your animal selection.

Adoptions apply to the species rather than individual animals. This is because some of our animals may move to other zoos as part of breeding programmes. If your adopted species moves, we will advise you and you will be given the opportunity to transfer your adoption to another species.
