Meet one of Melbourne Zoo’s critically endangered Sumatran Tigers and the passionate keeper who cares for them.

In this exclusive experience you will have the opportunity to meet these incredible yet critically endangered animals.

Our passionate keepers will grant you special access to areas of Melbourne Zoo usually reserved only for zoo keepers to learn about how we care for these animals and their plight of their wild cousins.

Sadly, three tiger species are already extinct and Sumatran Tiger numbers in the wild are falling.

Your participation will help contribute to Zoos Victoria's work to fight wildlife extinction.

Zoo entry not included. Be sure to also book your entry tickets for the same date as your encounter.
