It’s been over a year since we welcomed our Sumatran Tigers Jahly and Sialang to the Zoo!
To celebrate, join us on 1st & 2nd August for our International Tiger Day Celebration Weekend.
Finders Keepers, Activities & more!
It's been a year since our Sumatran Tigers arrived at Twycross Zoo! To celebrate we've hidden Tiger toys all around the zoo. If you find one, you can take it home with you.
Do you know how to draw a Tiger? Put your creativity to the test on our zoo floor
As you journey around the zoo, look out for hidden letters. Piece the letters together into one word and head to Guest Services to collect your stripes!
Children can meet our Tiger mascot Stripes at various times throughout the day... socially distant of course!
A year on, the devastating threats that are faced by Sumatran tigers in the wild haven’t changed – they are still classed as a critically-endangered sub-species on the ICUN Red List with less than 400 individuals left in the wild. How ironic that the conservation status for tigers in the wild hasn’t changed, but the very organisations built to prevent their extinction are themselves under threat.
The financial threat to Twycross Zoo is at its worst and could mean the closure of the 57-year old zoo in the future if we are unable to recover from the Covid-19 pandemic.
During these uncertain times, it’s been easy for some of us to forget just how endangered some of the world’s wildlife species are and it’s important that we all come together to make a difference to preserve the natural world.
