At 23 years old, Rani was the oldest resident of IEAS and the oldest tiger in the SSP (Species Survival Plan). She was a very special girl and could touch the heart of anyone. Each of us considers ourselves blessed to have had the opportunity to spend time with and care for this incredible animal. She had quite a character and could truly brighten any mood with her quintessential sounds and loving spirit. She benefited greatly from our Emotional Enrichment Program, as she craved attention and viewed all of her caregivers as a source of comfort. She is proof that taking care of an animal's emotional well-being is just as important as providing for their basic needs such as a proper diet and veterinary care. So today we say farewell to Rani.
She will forever live on in our hearts and our memories.
