Taronga Zoo Sydney’s new, world-class Sumatran Tiger experience, Tiger Trek is an expansive, Indonesian-themed exhibit where guests can get up close to the endangered Sumatran Tigers and learn how simple shopping choices can help to preserve their precious, natural habitat.
Tiger Trek is home to 4 year old male Clarence, who came to Taronga Zoo Sydney from Australia Zoo in May 2017, as well as Jumilah, the mother to youngsters Kembali and Kartika. Jumilah and her cubs were moved to Taronga Western Plains Zoo during construction of the new Tiger Trek experience. They joined Taronga's young male tiger Sakti, who moved there in 2014.
Jumilah was born at Taronga Zoo in 2003 and lived with her mother Assiqua, until our male Satu arrived from Stuttgart Zoo in Germany in 2008. Assiqua then moved to Adelaide Zoo and in 2011 Jumilah became the proud mother of our three cubs. Kembali (pronounced Kembali – meaning ‘return’) was the first born of our cubs, followed by Kartika (‘the great’) & Sakti (pronounced Sarkti – meaning ‘invincible’ or ‘powerful’). We were extremely excited by the birth of our 3 cubs which are the result of years of work by the carnivore keepers to create an environment conducive to successful introduction, mating, birth and mothering. These 3 precious cubs represent nearly 1% of the total wild population of tigers, so their birth was incredibly important in developing a world-wide safety net against the loss of Sumatran Tigers in the wild. When Kartika, Sakti and Kembali become adults they will have a vital role to play in the conservation of this stunning creature.
