CNPA Work Day at Tiger World

The Charlotte chapter of the Carolina Nature Photographers Association volunteers a couple of times a year to help the folks at Tiger World. We helped with painting and raking leaves.  After all the work is done they treat us to a tour of Tiger World so that we can get some special photos.  They brought out their new baby Snow Monkey for us to see, she was so cute!

Conservation & Preservation – To promote awareness about the Endangered and Threatened Species of the world. Protection & Safety – To maintain a safe secure preservation area for the public and for endangered and threatened wildlife.   I am helping  sponsor  Meka a Siberian tiger  cub that was born at Tiger World.   She is such a sweet cub.  Here’s a photo I took of her today.

Meeting the new tiger cub Malia at Tiger World in Rockwell, NC

I went to Tiger World on Saturday to see the new tiger cub Malia. She’s a rare snow leopard with the recessive gene that makes her tiger stripes very faint. She is so adorable. Friends of mine Susan and Todd Stein have sponsored her. I met Susan at Tiger World to spend a few minutes with Malia. Here are a couple of images. Jess and Lea are her trainers. Malia climbed into my lap on her own while I was in her cage with her. You can’t help but fall in love with her.
