The "White Tiger Discovery exhibit" is a super-charged educational and entertaining exhibit for children and adults alike! You may have seen some of our animals at the large premiere zoo's, Animal Planet, LIFE Magazine, Late Night With David Letterman, Jay Leno, State Fairs, and others, but to see them up close and in person in a preforming educational exhibit is an awesome experience! There is no doubt that such animals draw huge crowds. In fact, we just had one of our program animals at a new zoo, and that zoo has credited that one animal for a 27% increase in gate admission, (see People magazine, "Zoo Superstars")
The "White Tiger Discovery" program is a special designed exhibit and conservation education program which goal is to promote and excite people to the many conservation issues involving the last five remaining species of tigers in the wild. This program exhibit has many features that are huge crowd pleasers.
Being able to see the keepers feed the tigers and conduct "Tiger Talks" is an event that guest will not soon forget, and will also spark the conservation interest in such guest by taking their involvement one step further by allowing them to see what the tiger is all about.
This program is achieved by applying the method of "Recreational Learning", (Lewis, 1988) and adding the Keeper Staff interaction ability based on the following same study:
10 percent of what they hear.
30 percent of what they read.
50 percent of what the see.
90 percent of what they do.
By allowing visitors to actually see the Keepers interactive activities we have, it is our goal to bring people closer to the true meaning of conservation, and inform as well as excite them to all the wonderful programs they can get involved with to help promote the conservation efforts with the last remaining five species of tigers in the world. Reading and seeing information about the tigers on television and zoo's is great,...but by allowing the guest to actually see the Keepers participate with the tigers, truly sparks the conservation meaning in all of us.
Currently there are only about 60 Royal White Tigers on exhibit in zoo's throughout the United States, and less than 400 in the world, and none left in the wild. We are proud to be able to bring and share these magnificent adult Royal White Tigers to the general public.
