WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - Another animal is roaming the Palm Beach Zoo.
Berapi, a Malayan tiger, is the zoo's newest resident. And the zoo hopes she becomes breeding buddies with brothers Mata and Rimba.
Breeding is important because Malayan tigers are an endangered species.
There are only about 500 left in the wild.
"We want all the kids, the members and the donors to help us save tigers from extinction. This is a great community project," said Palm Beach Zoo President Dr. Terry Maple.
The tigers will be featured at the zoo's Tiger Fest Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.
