Sohni, a Sumatran tiger at Disney’s Animal Kingdom is expecting cubs sometime in August.

She is one of two Sumatron tigers Disney brought to the theme park in 2014 to increase diversity and expand its breeding program. Malosi, the other Sumatron tiger, is the father.

The tigers can be seen in their enclosures on the self-guided walking tour of the Maharajah Jungle Trek

Sumatran tigers are critically endangered with only about 500 left in the wild. They’re only found on the island of Sumatra in Indonesia, where development has reduced their natural habitat.

Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund has given $23 million to global nonprofits that protect tiger habitats and conserve the population, according to a Walt Disney World release.
