Born on August 5 at the Secret Garden to mother Indira and father Svengali, these are the first tiger cubs to be introduced at The Mirage in five years. Animal lovers from around the world will be able to watch and follow the cubs’ journey using the Twitter and Instagram handle @SARMOTIcubs and on Facebook at Facebook.com/SARMOTIcubs.

 

“Our newest ‘Ambassadors of Conservation’ play an important role in our never-ending quest to protect these animals,” said Roy. “It is imperative to continue our conservation efforts to save these magnificent tigers for future generations to enjoy and cherish.”

“It is always exciting to welcome new members to our family at The Mirage,” said Siegfried. “We are pleased to introduce these magical creatures to the world to relish in their beauty and are thrilled that people across the world can watch the cubs grow and learn on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.”

 

Starting September 12, the siblings will be available for guests to see and range in color: Liberty, a pure white female; Maharani, a striped white female; Hirah, a striped golden female and Justice, a light golden boy. The new clan has been dubbed the #SARMOTIcubs after the world-renowned magicians’ SARMOTI Foundation, which is dedicated to protect, conserve and preserve endangered and threatened animals globally, with particular focus on the big cats: tigers, lions, cheetahs, panthers and leopards.

 

The cubs will be available to view in a specially-designed nursery starting at noon daily.

 

“Without Siegfried & Roy’s conservation efforts, we would not be able to offer guests of The Mirage this unique and informative experience,” said Franz Kallao, vice president of hotel operations for The Mirage. “We are excited to welcome these four lovable tiger cubs to their new home at the Secret Garden.”
