NAPLES, Fla. - The Naples Zoo is honoring their Malayan Tigers, Tahan and Kadar, as they celebrate International Tiger Day.
Keepers will host two special presentations, at 12:15 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. educating visitors about the worlds largest cats and the Malayan Tigers that call the zoo home. Guests will even have a chance to win paw print paintings in a raffle, made by the tigers.
100% of the proceeds from the raffle will go to support the conservation of all tigers in the wild. Currently tigers are endangered and only about 3,200 remain in the wild.
The Malayan Tigers are one of the rarest sub species of tigers and only about 500 - 800 remain in the wild, primarily living on the Malay Peninsula in Southeast Asia.
Tahan and Kadar have called the Naples Zoo home since November 2012 and are currently about five years old.
