A brand-new £3.6 million enclosure is being finalised for a critically endangered species housed at the acclaimed London Zoo.
The Sumatran Tigers will be introduced to their new home – a 27,000 sq ft area five times the size of where they are currently residents - in six months time in an effort to help them breed.
An artist`s impression of the prospective pen was released last week and shows how visitors will be able to view the tigers through floor-to-ceiling glass windows, where visitors can see them play and relax in their indoor dens.
The Sumatran Tiger was classified as critically endangered by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (ICUN) in 2008, with population estimates languishing between 441 and 679 individuals.
