Celebrate The World’s Largest Cat On International Tiger Day At Tayto Park
Gara and Kahn are the two resident Amur tigers in Tayto Park. Amur tigers are listed with the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) as Endangered with just over 500 individuals remaining in the wild. The striking pair arrived in 2013 and have captured the hearts of Tayto Park visitors as well as their keepers. Since their arrival, they have helped to raise over €30,000 for the Amur Leopard and Tiger Alliance (ALTA), a charity which supports tiger conservation in the wild. ALTA sends 100% of the money donated directly to field projects (no administrative costs are deducted).
To help spread the word about the conservation of this magnificent species, Tayto Park have compiled a host of fun and exciting activities for the 29th July.
Tiger Enrichment workshops and talks with the Tayto Park keepers
Special raffle prizes with all donations going directly to ALTA (Amur Leopard and Tiger Alliance
