Jeff Sailer, President & CEO of the Toledo Zoo, expressed his excitement: “I cannot wait for all of you in our community to get the chance to see these wonderful new tiger cubs.

There are so few tigers left in the world that the birth of these cubs greatly benefits the population of these endangered species.”

The Amur tiger, also known as the Siberian tiger, is a subspecies native to the Russian Far East and Northeast China.

Once on the brink of extinction due to extensive hunting in the 20th century, concerted conservation efforts have seen their numbers rise to 480–540 individuals in the Russian Far East by 2015, including 100 cubs.

Given the endangered status of the Siberian tiger, the birth of two tiger cubs at the Toledo Zoo holds immense significance for the species’ conservation.
