Streakers raise thousands for tigers

Streak for Tigers

Did you know a group of tigers is called a streak? These brave souls took it literally and have raised thousands of pounds for big cats in Asia.

Following the outrageous success of the Zoological Society of London’s (ZSL) first-ever streak in 2013, the cheeky challenge returned on Thursday August 14 to raise big cash for big cats.

Two hundred fearless fundraisers ran around the heart of ZSL London Zoo in the nude and raised an incredible £37,000 to help ZSL protect tigers through global conservation work.

Last year, money raised from the Streak is now directly funding ZSL’s Sumatran tiger projects in Indonesia, and has so far helped to fund special anti-poaching patrols and provided them with a speed boat so that they can reach more remote areas.
