We’ve got a grrr-eat big challenge and we’re asking you for help!
Keepers have launched an online crowdfunding appeal to raise £350 to purchase an enormous purposely made enrichment ball for our Sumatran tigers and Asiatic lions and we’re hoping we’ll achieve our target during our half term Love Your Zoo Week celebrations.
Acting Team Leader Sam Grove, pictured, said: “We use lots of different enrichment with our big cats as it’s hugely beneficial within a zoo environment to encourage natural behaviours.
“Our cats love playing with large boomer balls, but they don’t last that long when there’s a 160 kg force batting it around, but the ball we’d like to purchase for them is specifically made for lions and tigers so it’s incredibly robust and very large and we know it will be a hit with them all.
“Any money raised through the appeal will be greatly appreciated and it would be incredible if we can hit our target during the week-long holiday.”
