Come and meet Simi our new rescued Tiger this half term

Simi the ex-circus tiger has finally arrived from Belgium and is happily settling into her new home. Simi was seized, on welfare grounds, from a circus in German 2 years ago. Since then she has been living in Natuurhulpcentrum rescue centre in Belgium. The IOW Zoo agreed to provide her with a lifelong home over a year ago but only recently received permission from the authorities to import her. The delay in her transfer was brought to light by the Island’s MP, Andrew Turner, during Prime Ministers Questions in the House of Commons in September. The zoo team are relieved and overjoyed to have Simi safely in their care.

Zoo Director Charlotte Corney says "We are over the moon to be in a position to settle Simi her into her new home. At long last she will have the opportunity to put down her roots and we are really looking forward to providing her with the specialist care and attention she deserves"

Be one of the first people to adopt Simi
