Description:

Hope for Wild Tigers with Dr. Tara Harris

At the rate tigers were being lost in the late 20th century, it didn't seem likely wild tigers would live to see the new millennium. But through the efforts of many, tigers still walk Asian forests. Yet much work remains to continue this good news. 

As one of the many voices for tigers, Dr. Tara Harris serves two roles: As coordinator of the Association of Zoos & Aquariums’ Tiger Species Survival Plan®, she manages a breeding program for about 350 purebred tigers living in zoos across North America; and as head of the Tiger Conservation Campaign, she galvanizes zoo support for efforts to save wild tigers in Asia. Come hear her talk about what's making a difference for tigers and how you can be part of making more good news for these majestic creatures.

Gather by the Malayan tigers for an informal mixer from 6 to 6:45 p.m. in the gardens followed by her presentation and Q&A in the Safari Canyon open-air theater until 8 p.m. Please dress comfortably for this evening outdoors.
