The Seattle stop of CATS, the Broadway hit, will benefit big cats at the Woodland Park Zoo.
A $10 donation will be made to the zoo for every CATS ticket sold for select performances in April at the historic Parmount Theatre. Several events also will take place at the zoo as part of a fundraising project for the new Tiger Exhibit.
The new exhibit is planned to open in 2014 and will be the heart of a state-of-the-art, two-acre complex in the Tropical Asia biome at the zoo. When completed, the entire extreme makeover will double the size of the current tiger and sloth bear exhibits.
The award-winning Woodland Park Zoo pioneered naturalistic exhibits for animals starting in the 1980s. Today, zoo programs work to save animals and their habitats in Washington state as well as around the world. Among the project sponsored include programs to preserve tree kangaroos, snow leopards, red-crowned cranes, western pond turtles, and Oregon silverspot butterflies.
