Taylor Wimpey Renews Sponsorship to Support Woburn’s Grrreat Tiger Home!

Last year, the developer launched a pioneering partnership project with Woburn Safari Park to sponsor its (then) new tiger house, which is now home to four Amur tigers from the European Endangered Species Program (EEP).

Following the roaring success of that partnership, Taylor Wimpey has since renewed its support and will continue to sponsor the tiger enclosure for the next three years.

Peter Gurr, Managing Director for Taylor Wimpey North Thames, says: “Our sponsorship of the Amur tiger house at Woburn Safari Park was the first corporate deal of its kind. It proved to be a huge success in helping to raise awareness about these beautiful animals, which is why we are delighted to be renewing our partnership with the park for the next three years.

“We hope our investment will continue to aid to conservation of the species and that the tigers will breed successfully and nurture future generations.”

There are only an estimated 400 to 500 Amur tigers living in the wild, in the birch forests of Eastern Russia. They face a number of threats, mainly poaching and loss of habitat, and the EEP is playing an important role in trying to preserve the species and prevent its extinction.

Woburn Safari Park Commercial Manager, Claire Rhodes, says: “The team at Woburn Safari Park is thrilled to extend the unique corporate partnership with Taylor Wimpey for three more years.  Not only do the tigers who reside at the park benefit, but the endangered Amur tigers in the wild will also benefit from the message of their plight being shared with new generations of supporters.

“Taylor Wimpey has been actively spreading the word about this beautiful, threatened animal and helping Woburn Safari Park to fulfil its aims of educating new audiences about the importance of fundraising and conservation.”
