With two new tigers, Alisha and Dragan, arriving from Berlin to join a special breeding programme at Dartmoor Zoo, they needed a new enclosure that would help them feel safe and secure. PRS Group agreed to donate time, resource and materials to build a new covered shelter for the tigers, while we donated render materials to ensure the building benefitted from a professional finish.
It is crucial the building is kept at a consistent temperature for the tigers, so PRS fitted insulation to prevent heat from both permeating the walls in the summer and escaping in the winter. It was then finished with our EpsiCoat Silicone K 1.5mm in shades of green, yellow and orange to complement the tigers’ surrounding habitat.
Commenting on the project, Colin Webster, managing director of PRS Group said: “This was a really exciting project to be part of and it is always good when we can give something back to our local community. We couldn’t have completed the tigers’ new home without the help from Wetherby and always appreciate their support.”
Our sales director, Paul Kirby, added: “We always look to support local community projects where we can and, having a long-standing relationship with PRS Group, we were more than happy to come on board with this project when they approached us. Dartmoor Zoo does some excellent work and it was a pleasure to be able to support them with their latest initiative.”
