Tiger Canyon, Philippolis, South Africa
Tiger Canyon started as an ex-situ tiger conservation experiment in South Africa in response to the poaching in India that decimated the tiger population at the start of this century. The goal was to see if it was possible to create a group of self-sustaining wild tigers outside of the Asian continent. It quickly proved to be very successful. The tigers adapted quickly, and were soon hunting, playing, and mating like their cousins in India.

افتُتح وادي النمر لأوّل مرّة على أنّه تجربةٌ للحفاظ على النمور خارج موطنها الطبيعي في جنوب إفريقيا، كنتيجةٍ لصيدها بشكلٍ غير شرعي في الهند ممّا تسبّب بإهلاك عدد لا يُستهان به منها منذ بداية القرن. وكان الهدف اكتشاف إمكانيّة عيش مجموعةٍ من النمور البريّة المكتفية ذاتياً خارج القارة الآسيويّة. وقد تبيّن نجاح هذه التجربة بسرعةٍ قياسيّة، فتأقلمت النمور بسرعة وبدأت تصطاد وتلعبُ وتتزاوج تماماً مثل أقربائها في الهند.
