We are very sad to say that our Amur tiger Marty passed away yesterday.

Marty had been experiencing health-related problems and unfortunately slipped away following a veterinary procedure.

He was hugely popular and will be greatly missed. Our thoughts are with everyone who worked with him.

Marty was ten years old and arrived at Highland Wildlife Park from the Czech Republic in 2012. He was paired with Dominika and fathered cubs Murray and Vicktor a year later.

Amur tigers are endangered, with around 450 estimated to remain in the wild.
