Tigers will help teach a vital lesson

Tigers will help teach a vital lesson

29 June 2009

THE new tigers at Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm will be used to teach people about conservation.

The two female, Bengal cats, which arrived at the Wraxall attraction last week, will feature in school workshops, keeper talks and also displays around the zoo.

Visitors will learn about how they have become endangered as well as conservation efforts being made around the world.

Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm owner Anthony Bush said: “The Bengal tiger lives in Southern Asia and has been hunted, captures and poisoned to such an extent that it has almost disappeared and may be extinct in 10 years without help.

“We want to do all we can to educate our visitors about the plight of these beautiful animals.”

Six-year-olds Kushkja and Tira will be let out into their outdoor enclosure tomorrow (Tues), after being given time to settle into the indoor section of their one-acre enclosure.

They will soon be joined by four-year-old hybrid male Tanvir.
