PRESS RELEASE

TIGER CUBS VISIT ST. JOHNS TECHNICAL SCHOOL

(Britt, bottle-feeding Toruk and Seze at the St. Johns Technical College)

The St. Augustine Wild Reserve was invited to the St. Johns Technical College for their Endangered Species/Global Issues Event (School-wide Literacy Project). The Alligator Farm was also there with an alligator and other exotic animals.

We brought our two baby tigers, Seze and Toruk, who delighted the students with their kittenish antics, playing with stuffed toys, and drinking from their baby bottles for the crowd.

The students prepared wonderful visual presentations describing the plight of many endangered species, including tigers, snow leopards, wolves and more.

FLORIDA SCHOOL FOR THE DEAF AND BLIND

The Reserve visited the Florida School for the Deaf and Blind for several hours, and invited the students at the school to visit with our baby tigers. Pamela Hill, the Reserve’s volunteer and tour guide, wowed the crowd with her presentation on endangered species. Afterwards, the students lined up single file to visit with our tiger cubs.

           

All of the children were able to view the cubs up close and personal, for a once in a lifetime opportunity. The smiles on their faces lit up the room as they watched us bottle feed the cubs; the blind students were in awe as they pet a baby tiger for the first time in their lives, which I believe left a memorable impression on them. We hope to be able to visit the school for future animal encounters.
