White tigers aren’t a different breed, just a recessive gene, like blonde hair or blue eyes. All white tigers are Bengal tigers.

A recessive gene gives white lions their unusual colors. A similar gene also produces white tigers. White lions can therefore be selectively bred for zoos, animal shows and wildlife parks. Such breeding involves inbreeding and can result in inbreeding depression (genetic defects, reduced fertility, and physical defects), although this has not yet been found to cause hind-limb paralysis or serious heart defects, which would indicate a severe level of inbreeding. People are concerned about white lions mating with lions of other alleles, due to possible extinction of the white lion. However, this is not valid as the offspring will inherit the recessive white gene and therefore make it possible to produce white offspring in a later generation. Some critics maintain that white lions should not be introduced into the wild because of the inbreeding that has taken place in zoos and breeding camps. However, ethical reintroduction programs such as The Global White Lion Protection Trust have ensured through the use of scientific methodologies that the lions in their program are not inbred

Zoobic Safari welcomes one of the rarest animal species in the world, the first white lion cubs born in the Philippines. With an estimate total population of only 300 all over the world, two female born white lion cubs was added to this little number here in the country last May 18, 2013. The cubs were from the pair of white lions that were donated to Zoobic Safari by Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and ruler of Dubai.

White lions are extremely rare and have not been seen in the wild in more than 15 years. They are not albino; their white coloration is the result of a recessive gene known as a color inhibitor specific to their native region.

In the with Zoobic Safari’s conservation and animal care program, the two white lions will be exhibited at the zoo to educate further its guests regarding the importance of the conversation as a key to survival of the many species.
