    Jungle Island’s month-old baby ligers made their park debut to a special group of visitors.

    The “5000 Role Models of Excellence Project,” a dropout prevention intervention program for students, visited the park and were able to meet Jungle Island’s new liger cubs.

    "The baby ligers were born one month ago and are happy and healthy," Jungle Island said in a statement.

    The rare cream-colored cubs are the first-ever born from a male African white lion and snow white Bengal tiger.

    Students from the program were able to explore the park and take pictures with Santa Claus and the new cubs.

    The program was founded by Congresswoman Frederica S. Wilson, U.S. House of Representatives member. Its mission is to help students and provide them with alternatives that will lead away from crime or violence.
