Thrigby Wildlife Gardens - tiger tree walk high in the trees
Progressive zoos like Thrigby Hall Wildlife Gardens are fast becoming a last refuge for many species as their natural homes are destroyed by the greed of man. The wild tigers of Sumatra are now down to a few hundred which is a fraction of their former numbers. Their forest habitat is being destroyed so fast that the remaining tigers are lucky to be alive and have little chance of meeting to produce another generation.
Thrigby Hall Wildlife Gardens is a strong supporter of The World Zoo Conservation Strategy of the International Union for the Conservation of Nature.
