London Zoo's started it's first charity appeal in it's history to help save threatened tigers.

It is hoping that Tiger SOS will raise £2 million that's needed to build a conservation headquarters for tigers at London Zoo.

The planned centre will combine a state-of-the-art breeding facility and a conservation hub enabling zoo visitors to personally interact with the tigers.

The zoo aims to open the new centre by 2013.
