Tiger Turns 30!
What is your earliest memory of Tiger?
Tiger (War Eagle VI) has lived at Auburn University since 1986, but was hatched in captivity in 1980. This year we proudly celebrate 30 years of this majestic Golden Eagle's life. Tiger was the first eagle to fly free in Jordan-Hare Stadium and, in addition to appearing in hundreds of educational presentations, fly at the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City.
To celebrate and honor her, nationally known artist Stephen Malkoff has teamed with the Southeastern Raptor Center to produce an unforgettable pencil portrait of Tiger. The original drawing was unveiled during halftime of Auburn’s homecoming game on Nov. 6.
This representation of Tiger displays her beauty, her strength, and “War Eagle” pride. Only 3,000 lithograph prints are to be produced. Signed and numbered prints are available in framed or unframed formats.
Artwork sales benefit the Southeastern Raptor Center – the home of Tiger – and will be used to construct a welcome center at the Raptor Center’s amphitheater. In time for holiday gift-giving, visit tiger30.com to reserve your copy of this limited-edition print. [online brochure]
