Taronga is celebrating the arrival of three precious Sumatran Tiger cubs, and they need names! Enter your suggestions here for your chance to win!
Sumatran Tigers have suffered greatly from habitat loss due to palm oil  plantations destroying their forests; their body parts are still used  extensively in traditional medicines and they are still hunted for their  pelts. Taronga is financially supporting wildlife protection units in Sumatra,  helping to create a network of community rangers to decrease illegal  logging, hunting and vigilante actions against wildlife.
