Naked and on the run at London Zoo
A chance to strip off and raise cash for big cats
HAVE you ever wandered around London Zoo and thought, now this would be a great place to run around in the nude?
Well now is your chance.
In the ultimate combination of naturist and naturalist ZSL London Zoo is calling on cheeky challengers to get their kits off and Streak for Tigers on Thursday August 11.
Fearless fundraisers are being invited to unleash their inner animal and prowl as nature intended around the heart of ZSL London Zoo to help tigers.
The Regent’s Park Zoo, run by international conservation charity the Zoological Society of London (ZSL) is working tirelessly to protect tigers and their habitats around the world, and is encouraging feline fans to help raise big cash for the big cats.
A group of tigers may be known as a streak, but sadly seeing any number of them in the wild is increasingly unlikely, with their numbers dwindling due to the serious threats they face. James Wren, fundraising director at ZSL, said: “We’re looking forward to welcoming courageous cat-lovers to pounce on places for this year’s Streak for Tigers.
“Money raised by those who dare to bare is vital in helping us continue our work for tigers around the world, and it’s definitely something to tick off the bucket list.” The route will take streakers around the heart of the Zoo past some incredible animals, and with only 300 places available space is limited.
More information and details on how to sign up are available at www.zsl. org.
