Shepreth continues conservation work with arrival of Sumatran tigers

Two majestic Sumatran tigers are the newest arrivals at Shepreth Wildlife Park in Hertfordshire. It has been a while since the zoo heard the daily roar of tigers, after the passing of much-loved Amba and Rana due to old age.

Mother and daughter Sumatran tigers, Ratna and Kelabu, recently arrived from Chessington World of Adventures and are settling well into their new surroundings.

The female tigers, part of the European Endangered Species Programme, will act as ambassadors for their wild cousins through tiger conservation and education activities at the Park.

Sumatran tigers are on the brink of extinction in the wild with only an estimated 300-500 remaining. The big cats face many threats including habitat loss and poaching and without intervention could become extinct in the near future. To date, Shepreth Wildlife Park has raised £60,000 to help critically endangered tigers in the wild
