Many thanks for the comments and clicks on the Orchids - always appreciated. Back to the WHF for a couple more cats

The Wildlife Heritage Foundation is a UK based charity working hard to ensure that the big cat species of the world are protected from extinction. Based in Kent UK they are an active partner in the European Endangered Species Breeding Programmes (EEP), as well as setting up education programmes for the people that share the habitats of these wonderful cats. The WHF is also raising awareness and funding for big cat projects around the world.
Currently they have been very successful with the Amur Leopard and the Sumatran Tiger. The Sumatran Tiger only 30 are known and of which only 4 are breeding females - difficulty in re-introduction in Sumatra due to deforestation.
V1 and 4 is one of the two cubs reared
V2 is Nias the father and boy was he huge standing on his back legs over 12 feet high
V3 he mad me jump so engrossed in trying to get a shot right up against the chain link fence - I think he fancied me for its dinner methinks!! Taken at 18mm and no cropping
They really are wild

Torn between 1, 2 & 4 here. Lovely images taken at a wonderful place. Without WHF and it's partners world wide these guys would be extinct. I have a treasure trove of images from here too.

Beautiful images of a beautiful creature. I love these animals and don't really like to see them cages but if that is the only way we have to save them than we are doing a great job by doing that. Amazing animals even the cubs look big and powerful. great images of as well. Well done to you Smile
