AMBA the tiger will be having a special birthday party at Shepreth Wildlife Park on Monday.
An array of activites will mark Amba's 10th birthday - and it is hoped the event will raise awareness of the plight of tigers across the world.
A spokesman for Shepreth Wildlife Park said: "One hundred years ago there were 100,000 tigers comprising eight sub-species, but today this figure stands at little more than 3,000.
"We want to raise much needed funds to help protect the last few remaining wild tigers."
