YWPF has worked with WildCats Conservation Alliance
International Breeding Programme:
Yorkshire Wildlife Park is home to four tigers, playing a crucial role in the European Breeding Programme, following the birth of 3 cubs, Hector, Harley and Hope to female Tschuna in 2015. The programme allows scientists and vets to undertake research that can be applied in the wild and helps raise awareness for the plight of Amur tigers. The breeding programme also provides an insurance population that could, if needed, be reintroduced to the wild.
Rescue and Rehabilitation Centre:
In 2015, YWPF granted £18K to fund a rescue and rehabilitation centre at Alekseevka in Russia, to help injured or struggling tiger cubs get back to strength. The centre then released them back into the wild when they were ready.
