Global Tiger Day and Baby Shower 2022

Dates: 7/30/2022 - 7/30/2022
Times: 9:00 AM- 4:00PM all day

This is the Year of the Tiger!

In honor of our observation of Global Tiger Day on July 30, we hope you'll join us in celebrating and raising awareness of this iconic endangered species.

At the Little Rock Zoo, we have an two tigers: Asmara (female) and Jaya (male) who delight us each day.  This Global Tiger Tiger Day is extra special for us.  Jaya, our male tiger, came to Little Rock from the Jacksonville Zoo in February 2022 as a recommendation of the Tiger Species Survival Plan to breed with our female, Asmara. The Zoo is excited to announce that ultrasound has confirmed Asmara is expecting cubs in early August! This is Asmara's first pregnancy, and Jaya will be a first-time father.

Global Tiger Day activities will include:

10:00 AM to 2:00 PM Informational tables with tiger craft activities at Big Cats

11:00 AM Asmara's baby shower with special enrichment for her and Jaya at Big Cats   Baby shower list: 

Cake and refreshments will be available for attendees (while supplies last.)

Other activities will include keepers on-hand to answer questions, videos of Asmara's ultrasound, photo ops with large tiger cut-outs, tiger tattoos and other tiger-themed games and fun.

All activities are included with regular Zoo admission.

Guests are invited to bring gifts for Asmara's shower.  Her shower gift registry list is here:
