Name zoo’s new arrivals and win a tiger tour
Do you have an idea for an unusual or interesting tiger name?
It could be put to good use on one of Auckland Zoo’s three newborn tiger cubs.
The zoo is running an online competition to find names for the six-week-old cubs born to Molek and Oz in June.
The best three names for each cub will be put to an online vote.
The three winners will receive a prize pack including a behind-the-scenes tiger tour.
The zoo is asking for a $10 donation per entry to help support the cubs’ cousins in the wild.
Carnivore team leader Andrew Coers says the cubs are doing well.
He suggests people enter unisex names since the sex of the cubs will not be known until their first vet check in midAugust.
Enter at www.aucklandzoo. co.nz/tigers before August 29.
The cubs are expected to be on display in September.
