Today is Global Tiger Day and tigers are in trouble. Did you know in 1913 there were around 100,000 tigers in the wild and today there are only about 3,200 estimated to be left in the wild? For Amur tigers, the species you can see at Zoo Boise, there are only around 400 left in the wild.
An easy and fun way to help protect endangered animals is by visiting Zoo Boise, where part of your zoo admission and 100% of the proceeds from the Conservation Cruise, Giraffe Encounter, Sloth Bear Encounter, and Zoo Farm go to the Zoo Boise Conservation Fund. We take pride in the fact that our visitors have helped us raise more than $1.5 million dollars for wildlife conservation since 2007.
