Good afternoon, welcome to T.I.G.E.R.S. in Myrtle Beach. This one of a kind animal preserve has just opened for the 2012 season!. The Tour is a guided walk through a fifty acre preserve just 17 miles South of Barefoot Landing, where you'll meet tigers, wolves, leopards, chimpanzees, orangutans, and other endangered species, many of them up-close and un-caged!
The Director of the preserve, Dr. Bhagavan Antle along with his staff work tirelessly to provide funding to critical wildlife conservation programs, thereby complimenting the educational messages and field research of T.I.G.E.R.S. The Fund receives its financing base through a percentage of revenues taken in by T.I.G.E.R.S., the generosity of donations from exhibit guests, and the general public.
