Naked and on the run at Lon­don Zoo

A chance to strip off and raise cash for big cats

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

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.
