Streak for Tigers

Last week, London Zoo held a ‘streak for tigers‘, not the first time they’ve held such an event. (Apparently a group of tigers is called a ‘streak’)



It’s a fundraiser to raise awareness for the plight of big cats, and to help with conservation, so it’s also a good cause.


Runners participate in the Streak for Tigers fundraiser at London Zoo, Thursday, Aug. 15, 2013. 300 supporters streaked around London Zoo in support of the ZSL Sumatran Tiger campaign. With only 300 Sumatran Tigers left in the wild, the event was to raise funds, and also highlight and raise the profile of work that needs to be done in order to save the tiger.

I wasn’t aware it was on, otherwise I’d loved to have organised an SL version of the event!

Second Life has Parktown Zoo, which includes a tiger enclosure, and our model is posing beside these beautiful animals.
