Get Naked In A Zoo For Charity (Nope, Not Making This Up)

Tigers are cool, right? Endangered, too, y’know. So, how far would you go to show your support? Because the London Zoo is calling for volunteers (300 of 'em, to be precise) to streak for tigers. That’s right, in the nudie!
FYI, this is completely real. On Thursday August 15, zoo-goers will be seeing more than just the monkeys and the penguins at ZSL London Zoo, as 300 people take part in a sponsored streak for stripes. Streak, geddit? Raising funds and attention (to, errm, multiple things), the fundraising event hopes to highlight the drastic work that still needs to be done to save and protect the only 300 Sumatran tigers that are left in the wild. Plus, it gives adrenaline junkies and wild-animal lovers alike the chance to run through London starkers, without getting arrested.
So, big-cat lovers, what are you waiting for? Sign up now, and then go forth — be wild and be free.
When: Thursday, August 15.
Where: ZSL London Zoo, Regent's Park, London, NW1 4RY; 0844 225 1826.
