Binghamton Zoo’s Amur Tigers Leaving For Breeding Purposes

Binghamton Zoo at Ross Park

This is not GRRREAT but it is necessary. The Binghamton Zoo is losing it’s 2 Amur tigers.

The Amur tiger sisters, Koosaka and Terney, will be moving to the Philadelphia Zoo and the Pittsburgh Zoo and PPG Aquarium for breeding purposes on November 17th.
They were born in the same litter at the Philadelphia Zoo in 2007.

They came to the Binghamton Zoo in 2012. Now at 8 years old, they are considered to be important to the North American population and can be paired for breeding.

The Amur tiger Species Survival Plan (SSP) recommended the relocation of the tigers based on their genetic importance. SSP plays an active role in the global conservation of each species they represent.

The Binghamton Zoo at Ross Park works with more than 15 SSP’s, including snow leopard, red panda and Andean bear.

You are encouraged to visit them this weekend before they leave.  Admission gates are open 10-3 every Saturday and Sunday through November 29th. Remember this is the last weekend that they’ll be at the Binghamton Zoo.

The Binghamton Zoo will announce plans for the exhibit at a later date. The plan will align with the mission and master plan of America’s 5th Oldest Zoo.

It’s located at 60 Morgan Road in Binghamton.
