A party to celebrate resident tiger Amba's ninth birthday was a roaring success at Shepreth Wildlife Park.

Visitors enjoyed activities including face and nail painting, competitions, and tiger feeding.

Animal collection manager Rebecca Willers said: "A lot of hard work goes into arranging this day, and it wouldn't be such a success without all the help from volunteers who turn up on the day."

The tiger party raised £710 for charity 21st Century Tiger.

To date, Shepreth Wildlife Park has raised £4,500 for the charity.

The party was designed to highlight tiger awareness and to raise funds to help protect the world's remaining wild tigers.

One hundred years ago there were 100,000 tigers, while today there are just 5,000.
