The arrival of these cubs is significant because Sumatran tigers rarely breed in captivity and many of their offspring do not survive due to complications. Because Kaitlyn was born to a wild mother and captive father, she is one of the most genetically valuable individuals in the world. Notes the zoo’s head tiger supervisor, Giles Clark:
“Not only will these cubs ensure the survival of the species in captivity, but they will also provide genetic diversity among captive tiger populations. Kaitlyn’s wild bloodline is an important factor.”
