As a tiger prowls, a trail of pawprints marks his path. 150 campaign supporters are invited to be a part of our new exhibit by setting their name into one of his prints, leaving a lasting impression of their support for ZSL’s vital work to conserve the Sumatran tiger.
Supporters donating £400 or over are invited to make their mark in this outstanding tiger home. Whether you wish to mark a visit or special occasion, remember a loved one, or are simply moved by a tiger’s majesty, these life-size prints will celebrate your support for these magnificent animals.

Just 150 pawprints are available, to be claimed by those donating over £400. Based on a life-size male tiger, prints are approximately 15cm long and wide. The trail of prints will be indented into the pathway through the exhibit, in pairs and at intervals reflecting a tiger’s stride.
Supporters can choose a name(s) to be engraved into a plaque set into the pawprint. Three lines of up to 18 characters each are available.
Notes to supporters:
- We expect to lay the pawprints from winter 2012, and to leave them in place for the lifetime of the exhibit.
- Each plaque can be engraved with up to three lines of up to 18 characters each. Each space and punctuation mark also counts as a character.
- Unfortunately we cannot engrave images onto plaques.
- We will confirm your inscription in writing; please notify us immediately of any errors. We cannot be responsible for any errors not corrected in this way.
- Please note that a donation to the appeal does not include Zoo admission.
If you would like to donate more than £400, you can add the additional amount during the donation process.
A member of our team will contact you within two working days for details of your desired inscription.
