We had great fun roaring on the crowd at Foyles Cabot Square Bristol yesterday. A crowd of over 20 keen young explorers and their parents heard Richard highlight some fun facts about tigers.

The story of Tigeropolis shows Tigers are losing their habitat – and are very much under threat in India.
Tigers are truly magnificent animals, yet there are probably just over 3,000 tigers left in the wild today. At the turn of last century tiger numbers where estimated at about 100,000, so in just over a hundred years tiger numbers have declined by about 95%.
So what do tigers need to survive and thrive? Tigers basically need three things – space to roam, enough prey to feed on and protection from poaching.
It all sounds simple enough, but to make it happen people need to care enough to actually change things on the ground. Thankfully there are a number of organisations trying to help.
