Last weekend we went to Melbourne Zoo. As regular readers will know, I visit the zoo as often as possible. These tigers are creatures I always make sure that I go to see – I think they are beautiful animals. Sadly, along with many other species, they are critically endangered. According to the WWF, it is estimated that there are less than 400 individuals left in the wild due to deforestation and poaching, which is why, in my opinion, organisations such as Zoos Victoria are so important with their captive breeding programmes. The zoo had four cubs born in February 2010 which can all still be enjoyed there today. Click on each image for a full view.
