Thousands of visitors to Central London caught a glimpse of our beautiful Sumatran tigress, Daseep, via a major photographic exhibition throughout May highlighting the plight of some of the world’s rarest animals.
The enigmatic shot of Daseep, taken by DZG member, amateur photographer Talvinder Chohan, took centre stage in Spotlight Sumatra @ More London Riverside, which focused on vulnerable species including orang utan, one-horned rhino and the iconic tiger. DZG Head of Media and Communications, Jill Hitchman, said: “We were all delighted when Tal’s image of Daseep was chosen to highlight such a major conservation issue as he was up against tough competition from professional wildlife photographers from across the world.
“The exhibition itself was amazing and commanded a prime spot alongside the Thames, in the shadow of Tower Bridge.
“It has attracted massive interest from workers, residents and tourists to Central London, and helped spread the word about the vital need to support conservation on the Indonesian island of Sumatra and the partnerships that are emerging to reinforce this message.” She added: “We were immensely proud to be associated with the exhibition and have made a £500 donation to organisers Sumatran Orang-Utan Society for this very worthwhile cause.”
Here are a few of the images posted from the exhibition . . .
