Beautiful work Julia and great sentiment! These big cats are just so fabulous aren't they.

We have the Wildlife Heritage Foundation nearby in Kent who work hard to ensure endangered species of Big Cats are saved from extinction - they are involved in breeding a collection of big cats in conjunction with the European Rare Species Breeding Program with a view to releasing them back into their native habitat

Theyhave been very successful with the Amur Leopard and the Sumatran Tiger.

Not open to the Public - the Foundation does allow photography and/or art groups to visit on pre-booked days to raise funds and I managed to get some wonderful ref photos as a result.

Sorry - didn't mean to hijack your post :-)

Oh please do hijack away!:) All information is useful, I have heard of the photography courses and have also seen artworks as a result! They do brilliant work supporting animals and rare plant life. Perhaps some day soon I'll make in down as peoples photos I've seen are astounding! Such beautiful cats, thankyou so much for your comment it means a lot :) Jules

The plight of tigers in the wild is terrible. I think anything we can do to promote awareness is so important. Your drawing does give them a face that we can connect with, very nice work.
