The Bronx Zoo announced expansion of its tiger community, and news of three new cubs couldn't come at a better time. While visitors to the flagship zoo enjoy witnessing energetic Amur tiger cubs, WCS leaders gather in Jeju, South Korea to discuss the future of wildlife conservation. Addressing a global delegation, Dr. Cristián Samper, WCS's new President and CEO, discusses tigers and their future. After providing a list of key Asian species requiring urgent attention, Samper spoke about the future of these regal felines--now occupying a conservation crossroads. One path leads to their demise; the other supports longevity. With long-standing conservation programs in nine countries where tigers live, WCS is committed to ensuring the survival of this iconic species.
