Snow Leopard Maternity Den & Habitat

Rare Snow Leopard Cubs Born. Again.

The most successful snow leopard breeding program in the country is right here at the Cape May County Zoo. On Saturday, April 20, 2013 Snow Leopard mother Himani gave birth to 2 cubs a female and male. This is her 4th consecutive litter. She has given birth to 7 cubs in 4 years, making her and father Vijay one of most prolific Snow Leopard pair in North America.

Our Big Cats/Snow Leopard Project                                 
Your gift will help us realize the goal of a new maternity den and habitat that will provide a safe, stimulating and natural environment for the breeding of these beautiful endangered cats. So far we’ve raise over $125,000 towards our first phase target of $250,000.

We are in the design stage for a proposed 2,000 sq.ft. snow leopard habitat. The habitat will include a water feature, elevated land forms, cooling elements and 500 sq ft masonry den and holding building. The enclosure will be stainless steel mesh and the visitor area will have a glass wall for nose-to-nose viewing.

Our Pride is growing.
We are all proud of mother Himani - and dad Vijay, for their successful litters of cubs born in our AZA-accredited zoo. We are proud of our Park Zoo Family. The staff’s dedication to the Species Survival Plan (SSP) breeding project and conscientious care of these extraordinary cats has put our zoo in the forefront of snow leopard survival.
