A SAWTRY man is set to run naked around London Zoo with 300 fellow animal lovers.
Craig Henderson, 25, will put himself on display at the zoo in a bid to raise money and awareness for the Zoological Society of London’s (ZSL) campaign to save the Sumatran tiger.
There are only about 300 Sumatran tigers left in the wild, all of which live on the Indonesian island. The subspecies was categorised as “critically endangered” in 2008.
The mass streak, which takes place on the evening of August 15, will raise funds to help track down and fight the threats facing the animal.
Those taking part will be wearing nothing but a pair of tiger ears and a tiger mask.
Mr Henderson, of Stangate, said: “This cause is such an important one, we need to help the Sumatran tigers. With only 300 left in the wild it really could be now or never.
“I for one would love to let future generations of my family know of these beautiful creatures.”
