Sumatran Tiger Gives Birth to Pair of Cubs at Animal Kingdom

The Sumatran tiger we first told you about last month finally gave birth to a pair of tiger cubs at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

Sohni is the first tiger to give birth in park history.

Conservation experts say Sohni and her cubs are bonding well. A team of veterinarians will continue to monitor the cubs and their progress.

Guests can expect to see the cubs on the Maharajah Jungle Trek within the next few months.

More on the Disney Conservation Fund:

Disney is proud to play an important role in the worldwide conservation and understanding of Sumatran tigers, a critically endangered species. Fewer than 500 Sumatran tigers exist in the wild, as the species is facing significant threats like habitat loss, poaching and the illegal wildlife trade. The Disney Conservation FundĀ (DCF) is working with groups like the Wildlife Conservation Society on its Reverse the Decline initiative to develop strategies for saving these amazing animals. To date, DCF has provided nearly $4 million to support the conservation of wild cat species like tigers, lions and snow leopards in 25 countries around the world.
