Killman Zoo and Conservation

Global Tiger Day – Started at Killman Zoo in 2015

Everyone is encouraged to come out to the zoo to help support global tiger conservation. The Killman Zoo has partnered with the London Zoo and 21st Century Tiger to help raise funds for today’s tiger conservation. The zoo feels deeply about this cause and will host various feeding demonstrations, keeper chats, face painting, raffles, and other fun activities for both adults and children. A portion of every admission and tiger themed giftware is sent to current tiger conservation projects. Event date will be posted at a later time. For more details on Tiger conservation please visit http://www.21stcenturytiger.org/

Killman Zoo has been honoured the last two years to have the Hamilton Tiger Cats come out and help support Global Tiger Day. We would like to take this opportunity to thank them for all their support especially because we know it is in the middle of their busy season. For them to take the time to help support us and the Tigers means a great deal to the zoo.

Global Lion Day – Started at Killman Zoo in 2016

Like Global Tiger Day, The Killman Zoo hosts a fundraising day for lion conservation every season. All keepers will be educating visitors on all aspects of lions and their habitats; in an ecological perspective with the major focus being on conservation. The day will have various events such as educational talks, big kitty feeding, and many kid activities. Exciting for the kids was the very special visit from some of our favourite super hero’s as we watched children interact with Spiderman, Supergirl and Batman. A portion of every admission and all lion giftware will go directly to lion conservation projects.

Event date will be posted at a later time.
