Dr. Chloe Wilde is our wildlife biologist. She studied ecology at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. Her favorite topic of study is conservation. Dr. Wilde is passionate about learning about and teaching others about how they can help wild cat populations, including reducing their use of products with palm oil in them. Though Carolina Tiger Rescue does not have any, Dr. Wilde’s favorite animal to study is the clouded leopard.

Today is Yanaba Tiger’s 13th birthday! Yanaba came to Carolina Tiger Rescue in 2018 with three other tigers, Kaari, Shira, and Tio from a facility in the southwestern United States. Yanaba prefers the quiet life in her off tour enclosure. She is very food-motivated and keeps serious watch over her territory. In honor of Yanaba becoming a teenager, staff made her special birthday enrichment and included a few treats for her to enjoy on her big day. We even featured Yanaba’s birthday surprise in one of our new livestreams. While everyone is spending more time at home these days, we are bringing the sanctuary to you! We have begun featuring animals and sanctuary activities like feeding and enrichment *live* on our Facebook page. To see what live streams we have planned for the future, have a parent check out our Facebook page. If you and your family can not catch us there, the videos are uploaded to YouTube later the same day. To see Yanaba’s birthday enrichment, you can follow this link to the Video page of our Kid’s website. Happy Birthday, Yanaba!
