A Sydney zoo introduced three rare tiger cubs to the public on Friday (March 29) and announced their names.

The three rare Sumatran cubs - two females and one male - were born on January 17 to an eight-year-old tiger, part of a regional breeding program that has seen 21 Sumatran tigers born at the Taronga Zoo in Sydney.

Sumatran tigers are the smallest surviving tiger sub-species and have been classified as critically endangered by conservationists, with only less than 400 remaining in the wild on the Indonesian island of Sumatra, according to the World Wildlife Fund.
