An imminent departure for conservation

Who is Taru?

In 2012, we were lucky enough to welcome Taru, a magnificent Sumatran tiger, one of the most endangered subspecies in the world. As a reminder, there are fewer than 400 individuals left in the natural state!

With other individuals of his species Taru is calm, confident and protective. A dominant male and respected father, he nevertheless remains attentive to his environment.

In 2015, Taru became the father for the first time of 2 males, Bukit and Harau.

In December 2022, Kinabalu and Taru gave birth to a pretty little tigress named Sankha, an important new birth for the conservation of the species.

Given his genetics and experience, Taru is important to the European Breeding Program.

A departure for conservation

The Sumatran tiger faces multiple threats, including habitat loss due to deforestation and poaching. Its population has declined significantly in recent decades, making each birth and transfer an important event for the survival of the species.

A species currently classified as “Critically Endangered” by the IUCN, our male is joining the Lumigny Safari Reserve in order to participate in the future of the “Panthera Tigris Sumatrae” and avoid any risk of mating with his daughter, Sankha , for which we will receive a new male in the coming years.

For the conservation of species, it is important to avoid inbreeding, which is why when they reach maturity, some animals can no longer live with their parent of the opposite sex. This is why they can be moved to other parks in order to once again participate in this genetic diversity.
