Paradise Wildlife Park (PWP) Tiger Country finally opens to the public on Saturday, October 3.

The new area includes a swimming pool deep enough that the two Amur tigers at the Broxbourne site, Sibera and Aleena, are fully submerged underwater.

PWP has also built an observation area where you can come face to face with the park’s magnificent tigers as they swim.

The first of its kind in the UK, the habitat was originally slated to open earlier this year at Easter, but has been delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Paradise CEO Lynn Whitnall said, “We are very excited to be expanding our tiger habitat in 2020.

“This will be the second brand new habitat in as many years after the success of our Lion Pride Lands.

“The Land of Tigers will bring visitors closer to our magnificent tigers like never before thanks to the incredible underwater view of the habitat.”

In the wild, Amur tigers are under constant threat due to negative human impacts including habitat destruction, poaching, illegal wildlife trade, and many other issues.

Lynn added: “Amur tigers are endangered, so we hope that little paw noise in the years to come will contribute more to European breeding programs and continue to show the contribution of our charity. to conservation in the UK and around the world. “

Paradise’s Land of the Tigers habitat focuses on the illegal logging trade where unsustainable and unauthorized mass destruction of the forest leaves the wild Amur tiger threatened with extinction, as classified by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (ICUN).

Zoo managers have structured the new habitat around thematic shipping containers that would be comparable to those used to transport trees felled as part of the illegal logging trade.

PWP not only wants Land of the Tigers to be a fun day out for the family, but also a tool to help educate Aleena and Siberian cousins ​​who fight in the wild.

Tigers Aleena and Siberia are sisters and were born at Paradise’s sister site The Big Cat Sanctuary in Kent.

The two sisters were brought to White Stubbs Lane in Hertfordshire in 2013 when they were just over a year old.

Since then, they have moved beyond their previous habitat, so the Paradise team decided to build them a brand new home, with an expanded space, a new off and on display den and a swimming pool.

Paradise Wildlife Park / The Zoological Society of Hertfordshire is also home to 800 animals, including 10 big cats, the largest anaconda on display in the UK and a bespoke dinosaur world, with 30 motion-sensing dinosaurs.
