Keira the jaguar cub takes her first steps outside at Paradise Wildlife Park!

Keira the jaguar cub was born at Paradise Wildlife Park back in April, as the Park celebrated the launch of its new charity the Zoological Society of Hertfordshire, and a few weeks ago she took her first ever steps outside!

Paradise is one of only two zoos in the UK, and one of six in Europe, recommended to breed Jaguars, as part of the EEP (European Endangered Species Programme). Jaguars are classified as ‘near threatened’ by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) so Keira’s birth was a real cause for celebration. She is the first jaguar cub to have been born at Paradise Wildlife Park and currently the only jaguar cub in the UK. Paradise Wildlife Park is now working on extending the size of its Jaguar exhibit, creating more space for both mother, father and cub!

We are ambassadors for Paradise and as Noah is now on summer holidays from school we will be heading to the zoo soon. Hopefully we will get to take a peek at Keira as she spends time bonding with her mother, Kedera. I'll share any photos of her that we take along with the rest of our visit to the zoo when we are back, so watch this space!

Paradise Wildlife Park / The Zoological Society of Hertfordshire is situated 20 miles north of London, 7 miles from Junction 25 on the M25 and approximately 25 minutes from London Liverpool Street by rail. You can find out more information or book tickets here.
