TORONTO, ON, Wednesday, December 21, 2016
- The Toronto Zoo is announcing that all four white lion cubs, Hank, Harrison, Oliver and Gus, will be embarking on an exciting journey to Parc Safari in Quebec in early 2017. Visitors will have a chance to see the Zoo’s 15 month old white lion cubs over the holiday break for one last time. This move for the four cubs signifies the next step in their behavioural development as they will have the opportunity to form their own pride.
The birth of Makali's cubs has been a wonderful opportunity to spread the word on the plight of African lions in the wild. As one of the Zoo's key mandates is to educate visitors on current conservation issues and help preserve biodiversity, these cubs help highlight the importance of lion conservation and what is being done to preserve this magnificent species in Africa. The Toronto Zoo supports lion conservation efforts in the wild through the Toronto Zoo Endangered Species Reserve Fund.
Toronto Zoo is inviting visitors to come out to the Zoo over the Holiday Break and attend the daily Lion Keeper Talk at 1:30 pm* to say farewell to the white lion cubs!
*Note, please visit torontozoo.com
