I went to London Zoo near Regent's Park this week to visit their Sumatran Tiger Family Jae Jae, Melati and Achilles and Karis. They are really cute and always playing together. Even though Achilles and Karis are only 3 months old, they already have a close bond. I am looking forward to watching them growing up and getting to know their characters more.
One of the organisations at London Zoo is 21st Century Tiger, they do wonderful work and conservation projects to help tigers in their natural habitat. Some of the projects they do include anti poaching and monitoring tigers in Parsa Wildlife Reserve in Nepal http://www.21stcenturytiger.org/2016/08/02/increase-in-tiger-numbers-nepal/ Without organisations like these, tigers would probably be extinct which would very sad and upsetting.
I used my Nikon D300s camera and Nikon 80-400mm lens to photograph the tiger cubs.
Below are a few of my favourite photos of Achilles and Karis:
