Endangered Amur tigers celebrate International Tiger Day at Highland Wildlife Park

29/07/2022 in Highland Wildlife Park

The Royal Zoological Society of Scotland (RZSS) has celebrated International Tiger Day at Highland Wildlife Park with a colourful box of straw and perfume as exciting enrichment for their endangered Amur tiger family.

The wildlife conservation charity’s tigers represent an important contribution to the future of this endangered species which is at risk of extinction due to extensive habitat loss and poaching.

As well as being part of the European endangered species breeding programme, RZSS has supported tiger conservation in Nepal by developing methods to evaluate tiger diets within the RZSS WildGenes laboratory based at Edinburgh Zoo.
