Tigers are one of the most iconic species in the world and the staff at the Toronto Zoo are working hard to make visitors aware of their conservation status in the wild. I interview Bailey Druery and Sarah Stata who are Zoo Keepers of the Amur and Sumatra Tigers, respectively, at the Toronto Zoo. Bailey and Sarah describe each of their tiger species starting with the husbandry of these animals to how each species’ population is struggling in the wild.
In this episode, you will learn why the Siberian tiger is now called the Amur Tiger and how destructive farming practices in Sumatra is leading to the removal of habitat for their tigers.
