Zoo Keepers FaceTime New Amur Tigers

Chessington World of Adventures Resort uses ‘FaceTiger’ to communicate with four endangered Amur Tigers ahead of their arrival

Chessington has introduced the concept of ‘FaceTiger’ to allow its Zoo Keepers and newest animal arrivals, Olga, Tsar, Kalinka and Kyra, to catch up online before the foursome set paw on British soil and move from their current home in Sweden to the Surrey Resort.

In addition to the meticulous planning and preparation for the endangered tigers’ arrival, the Carnivore Keepers in the UK and Sweden have been trialling this new digital enrichment programme in order to share key insights into the big cats' lives and wellbeing. This, all before they’re welcomed to a new multi-million pound home at Chessington, which will feature an innovative enclosure with Europe’s first overhead trails.
