An official London Zoo statement can be found in their website and it says:

“Money raised will be instrumental in enabling our committed and expert teams on the ground to continue doing what they do best – working to save tigers.

“Funds from previous Streak for Tigers events have already had a huge impact on ZSL’s tiger conservation work by helping to purchase camera traps, which have been used to monitor evidence of breeding and tiger populations.”
