Give these great cats a chance to recover by supporting our efforts to protect them from further habitat loss and poaching.
Throughout the day WCS staff and volunteers led quizzes and games for kids and adults that were both educational and fun. Via quizzes, tests, and puzzles, participants were provided new and interesting information about the Far Eastern Taiga wildlife – Amur Tigers, Far Eastern Leopards, Blakiston’s Fish Owls and many other species. Participants earned “tiger coupons” that they could turn in to “buy” a souvenirs in WCS tent, including wildlife stickers, magnets, WCS bandanas and T-shirts, calendars and notebooks.
