Sponsor an Amur Tiger Today!

The Amur tiger is the largest of all cats, with a body length of over nine feet!

In the 1940s, only about 25 Amur tigers remained in the wild. Today, over 400 live in the Amur Valley region of the Russian Far East, where their numbers are increasing. Only a handful live in northern China, along the Russian border. While the wild Amur tiger population seems to be recovering, its future is still uncertain. Tigers residing in zoos are an important safety net for wild populations. Learn more about the Amur Tiger

Since opening in 1978, the Minnesota Zoo has had more successful Amur tiger births than any other zoo in North America! We believe this is a testament to the Minnesota Zoo’s facilities and dedicated keepers.

Your gift to the Minnesota Zoo Foundation will help us provide the resources necessary for the Zoo to maintain the best possible care for all of our amazing animals, while also continuing our conservation efforts here at home and around the world.
