Why the name Tigris?
I chose the name after Panthera Tigris to reflect my interest in conservation, particularly of big cats.
Panthera Tigris: Over the last century wild tiger numbers have plummeted by over 95%. As few as 3,200 tigers remain in the wild today. There are more tigers in captivity in the US than are left in the wild. The tiger is officially classed as endangered by the IUCN. (extract from WWF website)
There are a number of charities supporting Tiger conservation, could you make a donation?
