Daseep’s starring role


DZG’s Sumatran tigress, Daseep, has a starring role in a national amateur photography magazine.

The stunning snap was taken by DZG member, Kathryn Willett on Global Tiger Day, with Practical Photography magazine experts praising Kathryn’s capture of Daseep’s cheeky pose.

Media and Communications Officer, Rachel Hickman, said: “We are really lucky to have some very talented amateur photographers regularly visiting DZG and we love to see their brilliant photographs of some our 1,800-strong collection posted on our Facebook page.

“Daseep is a beautiful ambassador for Sumatran tigers in the wild, of which they are fewer than 400 surviving and it’s great that three months on from Global Tiger Day, with the help of visitors like Kathryn, she’s still helping spread the vital conservation message about their need for survival.”
