Isle of Wight Tour Guide Georgie McCarthy went above and beyond the call of duty on October 30th by running the Great South Run! She raised a fantastic £500 for conservation charity Global Tiger Patrol.
Global Tiger Patrol run our project supporting local advocacy for tiger conservation
in Karnakata, India. The zoo is the sole funder of the project, and we donate £10800 a year. Staff from all areas of the zoo are involved in fundraising, as we all believe passionately in the need to protect and conserve wild tigers.
Georgie can still be sponsored online through JustGiving. The money will go to Global Tiger Patrol, and will count towards the Isle of Wight Zoo's project.

"If we don't start doing something to protect our beautiful tigers in the wild they will disappear, and our children's children will only ever see them in zoos but never in the wild"
