The 33 year old zoo keeper from Chippenham, described as the "shining light" of her workplace, died in a "freak accident" at Hamerton Zoo Park in Cambridgeshire.
Will Travers of the Born Free Foundation says that while speculation about the tragedy is "not a good idea", all zoos in the UK should review their safety protocols.
Mr Travers also urged that the tiger involved should not be put down.
