Jaya's Birthday Celebration!

Come celebrate the birthday of one of the Zoo's newest members, Jaya, the Malayan tiger!  Jaya has quickly become a Zoo favorite, and we hope that you join us as we have a Hawaiian-themed party for his 11th birthday!

Each Zoo guest wearing a Hawaiian shirt, tiger shirt, or bringing a stuffed tiger will be entered into a drawing to receive one of five (5) prizes, including:

  • A Zoo membership; 
  • A gift certificate to a dining establishment; 
  • A tiger-themed gift basket from the Zoo's Safari trader gift shop; and
  • One of two framed pictures of Jaya

Zoo guests can purchase additional chances to win for a $5 donation to the MYCAT tiger conservation organization.
