After the birth of our tiger cubs on November 25, 2017, the Zoo asked for your support to bring in an architect to help us design a new tiger habitat. Your support was overwhelming! And because of your support, we were able to showcase our habitat design to Pam Hope Kochiss Werth, a longtime Zoo friend. She pledged the single largest gift ever given to the Zoo – $1 million in support of opening the new habitat for our 100th Birthday Celebration in 2022.
NOW WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT! This is where your support matters more than ever before: every dollar donated will be matched up to $1 million! The new tiger habitat we envision, with a greatly expanded footprint, educational ranger station, glass viewing windows, and an elevated walkway for our tigers to move between enclosures, is estimated to cost us $2.5 million. If you can help us match Pam Hope Kochiss Werth’s extremely generous donation, we’ll be more than halfway there.
