A brand new tiger territory will open at Paradise Wildlife Park in Hertfordshire this Easter and is the first in the UK with a pool deep enough for the big cats to be fully submerged.
Land of the Tigers has been constructed from the Park’s previous cheetah and lion habitats and will see resident Amur tigers, Siberia and Aleena, move into a new enclosure.
A dedicated viewing area has been constructed so that visitors can watch the world’s largest tiger species swim and play underwater just inches away. Unlike most other cat species, tigers enjoy being in the water.
The pool will also be home to a collection of fish, making this the first mixed species habitat for big cats in the UK.
Amur tigers are endangered in the wild and looking ahead, Paradise Wildlife Park hopes to contribute to the European Breeding Programme and conservation of this iconic species.
Land of the Tigers is the latest ambitious rebuild project for Paradise Wildlife Park and follows the launch of the new Lion Pride Lands habitat last year. For more information on visiting go to www.pwpark.com
