Sumatran Tiger

Sumatran tigers are on the brink of extinction—there are fewer than 500 left in the wild. The National Zoo is committed to the survival of the Sumatran tiger. Through the Association of Zoos and Aquariums' Tiger Species Survival Plan, the Zoo is helping to maintain genetic diversity in the captive Sumatran tiger population, which serves as an insurance policy for the future of the subspecies.

Adopt a Sumatran tiger and help support conservation efforts at both the National Zoo's D.C. campus and the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute in Front Royal, Virginia.
