Making a home for one of the worlds most endangered cats at Twycross Zoo
Join us on Thursday 19th March at 6:15pm for an evening with Neil Dorman, Curator of Living Collections and Callan Edwards, Large Mammals Keeper here at Twycross Zoo.
In 2019, Twycross Zoo opened a £multi-million habitat which at 3,000m² is one of the largest purpose-built Sumatran tiger habitats in the UK. After welcoming our male, Sialang, and female, Jahly in June 2019 our keepers have been working hard to get them settled in.
Neil Dorman will be discussing the process of how this brand new habitat was designed and built, the European breeding programme and what it means to have Sumatran Tigers at the zoo for the first time in 15 years. Large Mammals Keeper, Callan will be giving an insight into working with tigers and how conducting training can help with visual health checks.
This exciting talk will be extremely popular so don’t miss out, book now.
