This is the true story of Moka the tiger cub, his rescue from wildlife traffickers, and the people—and tiger friend—who would help save him.
When Moka was just a few weeks old, wildlife traffickers tried to smuggle him into the United States from Mexico. Thanks to a US Customs and Border Protection officer, Moka was discovered on the floor of the car and rescued. The tiger cub was taken to the San Diego Zoo Safari Park, where he was raised alongside another young tiger cub, Rakan. Moka and Rakan spent their days wrestling and playing with each other. But being born into the world of wildlife trafficking would soon bring some unexpected health challenges to Moka.
Saving Moka is part of the award-winning Hope & Inspiration series, which includes five true stories of animals who faced—and overcame—challenges at the San Diego Zoo.
