A female cub, Dharma was born in May 2017 to mother Dourga and father Denar – she now lives in Edinburgh Zoo, Scotland. Dash, a male cub, was born in June 2019 was born to the same breeding pair and still resides at Fota Wildlife Park.

To date, Fota Wildlife Park has raised €47,500 for wild tiger conservation, donated to the WildCats Conservation Alliance, (formally 21st Century Tiger). The monies donated by Fota Wildlife Park are used to fund projects in Kerinci Seblat National Park, in the Indonesian island of Sumatra.
