New Tiger Cubs Melati and Mya

4 posts in this topic

Dreamworld's new tiger cubs have arrived and are able to be viewed by the public, although they seem very sleepy.

The Tiger Cubs are available in a group session that goes for 20 minutes where you are able to get close to the tigers and have photos taken. This comes at a 140 dollar price tag.

They can be seen near the end of pandemonium and the tiger island shop.

This comes after Dreamworld introduced the "get close" to the tigers experience where guests can get close to the tigers through a glass wall experience.

This sounds like a report but oh well

Participated in the Tiger Cub Experience today for my birthday because why not? 

Some general updates on the cubs for those interested: 

Weighing 6/7kg as of right now

They are doing in park hour walks during the day again, times are subject to change

The cubs have been introduced to some of the bigger cats, Pi is interacting with them very well. They have been brought out to the island as well.

There go the cubs.. seems a strange choice to me, the cubs are big drawcard. Maybe they are expecting some more to come along shortly 

THE Gold Coast’s two tiger cubs are off to Canberra’s National Zoo and Aquarium in a deal to raise awareness of the plight of their species.

Seven-month old Melita and Mya, born-and-bred at the Dreamworld’s Tiger Island, will be relocated in coming weeks to similar natural surroundings with a waterfall and climbing towers.

The shift is part of a new partnership between Dreamworld and National Zoo to highlight that just 400 Sumatran tigers remain in the wilds of Indonesia.

Dreamworld life sciences general manager Al Mucci said the two groups were leading a global movement to save the tigers, raising funds to combat poaching.

Mr Mucci said Melita and Mya were among 40 Sumatran tigers in captivity as an “insurance population”.

Dreamworld still has 10 tigers left at Tiger Island.
