Name zoo’s new ar­rivals and win a tiger tour

Central Leader - - News -

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.
