T.I.G.E.R.S. – 2015 season opens tomorrow!

Good day from T.I.G.E.R.S. in Myrtle Beach, SC!  Got plans for the weekend?  The weather will be spectacular and tomorrow is THE BIG DAY.  The greatest Myrtle Beach attraction opens for the 2015 season!

There are two ways to experience the greatest hands-on, interactive wildlife encounter in the world. You can visit T.I.G.E.R.S. Preservation Station, located at Barefoot Landing in North Myrtle Beach for free! Or you can take the T.I.G.E.R.S. Wild Encounter Tour in Myrtle Beach.

Wild Encounters Tour is a guided walk through a fifty acre preserve in Myrtle Beach, 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! During the tour professional photographers shoot studio quality photographs and video of the tour and the T.I.G.E.R.S. Preserve experience. This gives you the opportunity to take home a set of portraits and phenomenal videos that are incomparable to any other photo opportunity.

This is the best way for you to support our ongoing breeding and international conservation projects and get hands on with what we do.

By attending the tour you get one complimentary 8X10 photo per group of your choice from your tour. However we highly recommend our Photo CD.  Our Photo CD is a professional CD portfolio of you and the animals on the tour. It has each person in your group individually with the animals, your group together with the animals, candid shots of your day and photos of the animals themselves. You end up with several hundred photos that you have the right to reproduce as long as it is not for commercial purposes like ads, billboards, movie and television.

T.I.G.E.R.S – Orangutan rides a jetski

Good afternoon from T.I.G.E.R.S in Myrtle Beach!  Enjoy this on this rainy day….

Orangutan rides a jetski

Our-year-old rescued orangutan Surya is having a whale of a time playing on an inflatable jet ski at the center which is his home.

Surya a 4-year-old Orangutan rides an inflatable Jet Ski.

The animal, dressed in a child’s wetsuit to keep it warm, enjoys floating across the wide pool, before waving at onlookers.

Surya lives at The Institute of Greatly Endangered and Rare Species in Myrtle Beach, SC.

He is put in the pool every week to keep him active and challenged and appears to enjoy splashing about with his trainers.

Animal expert Dr Bhagavan Antle said: “Suyra loves playing in the water. But he doesn’t like getting his head wet, so he wears a lifejacket so he doesn’t go underneath.

“He is quite content when he’s bobbing around on the top. And he loves the jet ski because he can look down on all of us.”

Dr Antle and his team of handlers introduced Surya and other orangutans to water when they were just babies and played in a large bath.

“The orangutans love playing in the bath. But they don’t swim naturally and so if you introduce them to the pool, they’d sink to the bottom,” he said.

“So we discovered wearing children’s lifejackets helps to give them confidence. Now some of them can even swim without their life jackets.

“But Surya prefers the jet ski and he’ll always head for it as soon as we get into the pool.”

Visit our 50-acre preserve in Myrtle Beach, home to over 60 big cats. Monkey around with our apes, watch tigers swim, and meet our grey wolves. See tigers running at full speed and get the feel of our “cubs”. You may even get to meet Bubbles the African elephant. This is the only place in the world where you get to meet the Liger, the world’s largest cat as seen in the 2014 Guiness Book of World Records!  www.myrtlebeachsafari.com

 


T.I.G.E.R.S. – Opening day for the Wild Encounters Tour 2015 season is in 42 days!

Good afternoon once again from T.I.G.E.R.S. in Myrtle Beach!  It’s getting closer and closer, the opening day for the Wild Encounters Tour 2015 season is in 42 days!

The Wild Encounters 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!

Here are two of the animals you will meet:

She has a tender heart, a nice hairy shoulder to cry on – and she knows where her zoo keeps the baby wipes.

So Anjana the chimpanzee is well qualified to be a kitten-sitter.

Since orphaned puma cub Sierra turned up at the zoo, Anjana has helped her human carers with all the feeding, cuddling and chasing duties.

Primate mum: Anjana the chimp helps zookeepers to care for orphaned puma cub, Sierra. The chimpanzee, who is five, has lived her whole life at The Institute of Greatly Endangered and Rare Species (TIGERS) in South Carolina, in the U.S..

She learned to care for little big cats while in the charge of resident feline curator China York.

Park director Dr Bhagavan Antle said: “Chimpanzees are great learners and imitators so it wasn’t long before she took on the right behaviours that were necessary to keep the kittens in line.”

Milking it: Anjana makes sure Sierra gets fed and even knows where the wet wipes are kept

“If Sierra is running around too fast then Anjana will scoop her up and make sure she doesn’t get into any trouble.”

Anjana has already helped to bring up two royal white tiger cubs, a leopard and four lions. Dr Antle added: “She is a great assistant. If you need a baby wipe you can just tell her and she’ll run off and get it.”

T.I.G.E.R.S. – We Could Lose a Top Predator

Good afternoon everyone from T.I.G.E.R.S. in Myrtle Beach! Where in Myrtle Beach can you experience a safari?  What attraction can you visit and feel the leathery hide of an elephant, the soft touch of a lynx, and hear the heart pounding sound of tigers running at 55 miles per hour?

image0044

As I was doing some research for the blog this morning, I found this article:

Tigers are Rapidly Disappearing from the Wild
According to the latest estimates, there are only about 3,200 tigers left in the wild on the entire planet. That’s a catastrophically sharp decline from the 100,000 tigers that were estimated to be in the wild in 1990. The WWF experts warn that “The big cat, which is native to southern and eastern Asia, could soon become extinct unless urgent action is taken to prevent hunting and loss of habitat.”

The Campaign to Double Wild Tiger Population
Countries where tigers are still found in the wild – such as China, India and Bangladesh – have made a commitment to double their numbers by 2022 (Year of the Tiger in the Chinese calendar). But following through on that pledge will be the hard part, and conservation groups are trying to put pressure on them to force them to keep their word.

We Could Lose a Top Predator
If tigers disappear (at least from the wild), we not only lose a top predator that is essential to many ecosystems, but it also means that enough habitat has been destroyed to also endanger many other species. Tiger population health is an indicator of ecosystem health in many Asian countries. by Michael Graham Richard (@Michael_GR)

Director Bhagavan Antle works closely with international wildlife conservation projects in South America, Africa and Thailand. In addition to providing much needed funds for these programs, our personnel have been involved in field research as well.

The Rare Species Fund (RSF) actively supports the African Association of Zoos and Aquaria (PAAZAB) in its efforts to improve African zoo collection management, captive animal husbandry, and public educational messages. On a Continent where millions of wildebeest make an annual migration of several hundred miles, covering a huge swath of two countries, accompanied by zebra and other plains game, as well as many rare and endangered predators, almost 99 per cent of all African youth will never see any of these animals in their natural habitat.
