The tiger cubs will be the first of an array of visiting baby animals coming to Paradise Country’s Global Conservation Centre as part of a new partnership with the Bullen family.

As part of the partnership, Paradise Country’s ‘Save a Mate’ conservation program is going global to help raise awareness and much needed funds for not only Australian native wildlife, but now animals around the world, including critically endangered tigers.

Paradise Country General Manager, Shane Phillips said the two female cubs, Maliah and Melah will arrive at the park on Saturday 29 June and will be ambassadors for their species at Paradise Country until early October.

“The cubs were born on the 13th May and currently weigh four kilograms with their diet consisting of a special milk formula,” he said.

“Excitingly guests to Paradise Country will be able to get an up-close look at the cubs on selected days over the school holidays as they temporarily reside in their specially designed exhibit within our new Global Conservation Centre.

“These tiger cubs are ambassadors for their wild cousins and will help raise awareness and funds for tiger conservation through our in-park educational and fundraising efforts.

“We are proud to partner with the Bullen family, who have a long-history of caring for animals, on this wonderful initiative to bring different species of animals to the park which we know will inspire our guests to take action towards animal conservation.”

The cubs will be at Paradise Country on Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sundays throughout the school holidays from 10am – 3pm.
