It’s #GlobalTigerDay and Jai knows how to celebrate, with his favorite keg! Empty kegs make excellent toys for tigers as they can withstand a lot of tiger sized punishment. Join Jai in celebrating Global Tiger Day by getting involved with tiger conservation today and you can help save tigers!

Now that is a popsicle fit for a tiger! During our Winter in July event many of our animals received amazing treats created by our Nutrition Services staff, like a giant “fishsicle” for the tigers! Thanks to Phoenix Zoo volunteer WJ Wheaton who captured this great moment of Hadiah pouncing on her treat.

Throwback Thursday to our 2013 Winter in July event! It was Luka’s first Winter in July and he definitely enjoyed the giant ice treat and piles of snow. Our 2014 Winter in July event is this Saturday, July 19, from 7 – 11 a.m., and the Andean bears, along with many other Zoo animals, will once again be getting snow and treats!

Happy World Snake Day! In case you missed our news earlier this week, the Phoenix Zoo’s Native Species Conservation Center announced the first-ever propagation of the threatened narrow-headed gartersnake! This species was just recently listed as “threatened” under the Endangered Species Act, adding extra significance to this announcement. Learn more by visiting our blog at phoenixzoo.org
