Toronto Zoo Wildlife Conservancy Adopt An Animal
The Sumatran tiger is the smallest tiger subspecies, with round face, ears, and sturdy build. Males weigh around 120 kg, females 90 kg, with both displaying rust-orange fur with distinctive black stripes. Limited to Sumatra, Indonesia, they inhabit dense forests and higher altitudes, avoiding human-altered landscapes like palm oil farms. Valued for traditional medicine, they're poached for body parts and cubs for the illegal pet trade. In the wild, Sumatran tigers are endangered, with only around 600 Sumatran tigers that remain in the wild.
The Toronto Zoo participates in and contributes to the management and support of Sumatran tigers through research, husbandry, management, and education. Working with other accredited facilities, the Toronto Zoo helps maintain the genetic health and population numbers of Sumatran tigers in captivity and in the wild.
By adopting a Toronto Zoo animal, your support will help to safeguard the future of species, like the Sumatran tiger, for future generations. Help us to preserve and protect our planet, and the incredible wildlife that call it home.
