More than 500 people dressed as tigers took part in Knowsley Safari’s first-ever Tiger Parade today (25th May) to raise awareness of the plight facing the endangered Amur Tiger and support projects run by the WildCats Conservation Alliance.

Under threat from poaching and deforestation, there are just 500 of these big cats left living wild in the Russian Far East.

The Tiger Parade walked through the safari’s Tiger Trail, a 10,000 square metre natural habitat that’s home to Amur Tiger sisters, Sinda and Bira, where people were able to learn about efforts to stabilise and eventually increase the Amur tiger population
