Tiger Exhibit Updates

This month, our tigers will be moved off exhibit so we can complete our planned exhibit renovation. Once complete, the exhibit will highlight a new species featuring three young female Sumatran tigers from Topeka Zoo.

“Sumatran tigers are critically endangered with less than 400 left in the world,” said Zoo Mammal Curator Lanny Brown. “Our commitment to the Association of Zoos and Aquariums’ (AZA) Species Survival Plan (SSP) to care for this incredible species includes the eventual addition of a male and the possibility of cubs down the road. We will also expand our conservation commitment by working with the AZA’s tiger SSP.”

Mylee and Sareeka, our current tiger residents have been at Nashville Zoo for more than a decade. The two sisters will relocate to Tiger Haven in East Tennessee.

Scheduled to open in 2016, the tiger exhibit renovation will expand the outdoor yard providing more space for the animals and increased viewing areas for our guests. Our plans include a covered bridge, waterfall and an indoor viewing area. (Read more about our plans)

Loving all the new improvements being made, but will miss our two girls. We've all loved seeing them and watching them grow over the years. Will miss you Mylee & Sareeka! :-(

I am so thrilled that you are closing your elephant "exhibit" and allowing these intelligent creatures to live a more natural life at the sanctuary. Times are changing, people are realizing that some larger animals do not thrive in the zoo environment. Bless you for doing this. Might I suggest that you have a live feed from the sanctuary to a screen at the zoo so that people can see the wonderful thing you have allowed to happen with the elephants? Have a wonderful day!
