Head of Media and Communications, Jill Hitchman, said: “Talvinder has been working on a tiger conservation project with our Media team since December and his photographs so capture the spirit of our two female tigers that we decided to share his work with our visitors.”   She added: “It has been a great privilege for everyone at DZG to witness both an Amur and a Sumatran tiger sharing the same space and observe these magnificent creatures grow from playful cubs to inquisitive juveniles and Talvinder’s photographs offer a visual record of their journey to maturity.”  

The official opening ceremony will be performed by wildlife photographer and Dudley College lecturer, Phil Brooks, and will take place today at 11am at the Tecton tiger enclosure.
