By adopting one of our Bengal or Sumatran Tigers at Australia Zoo, you will not only be helping us to provide them with the ultimate in animal care and veterinary needs; you will also join the fight to preserve these amazing creatures in the wild.
Our priority is to ensure that the small population of tiger sub-species left in the wild is able to survive and flourish without the constant threat of poaching and habitat destruction. This is a massive undertaking, and your support is vital to the success of our mission. Learn more about adopting a tiger.

Don’t support the wildlife products trade
Our big cat handlers have identified some easy but important ways that you can help promote the survival of tigers and other wildlife.
- Don’t buy products made from or containing endangered species – traditional Chinese medicines, souvenirs and lucky charms. While there is a demand for these products, animals will continue to be slaughtered.
- Don’t buy products made from hardwood timber such as teak and mahogany. This hardwood comes from virgin forests that are not logged in a sustainable manner and are the homes to many of the world’s endangered species. Even the brand of office paper you use in your computer at home may affect these forests.
- Invest your money wisely. Many of today’s financial institutes invest in unethical programs, both against the environment and human rights, using your money to do so.
- Buy fair trade products – make sure that the product you are buying is not supporting the abuse of people in developing countries. Poverty and environmental degradation often do hand in hand.
