Recently, the Animal Kingdom’s Sumatran Tiger Sohni gave birth to two cubs. They are currently spending time bonding, but will appear on the Maharajah Jungle Trek in a few months.
The Disney Parks Blog posted this adorable video of the cubs with their mom.
Disney is working with other conservation groups to try and help species like the Sumatran tiger and have given almost 4 million to do just that.
“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 Fund (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.”
It’s wonderful to see organizations working together to help save endangered animals. What do you think of the adorable new cubs? Comment and let us know!
