The Dreamworld team is today deeply saddened to announce the passing of our beloved 18-year-old female matriarch tiger, Sita. As the eldest member of our Tiger Island family, Sita has been a longtime favourite with our staff and visitors to the park, and our team here are understandably saddened by the news. Sita led a long and happy life at Dreamworld. While tigers in the wild live for between 10 and 12 years, Sita lived to the grand old age of 18. Sita was one of the “Awesome Pawsome” born at Tiger Island in 1998. Sita has been a phenomenal ambassador for the plight of the endangered wild tiger. While Sita’s passing is deeply saddening, the Dreamworld team will continue to shine the spotlight on the perilous plight of the wild tiger.
