Feedback from the students of Worthington Kilbourne High School, Columbus, Ohio - September 28, 2006

Student - 06

Summary:

  • The tiger population over the past 50 years or so has gone from having tigers all over the Middle East, India and Asia to merely small specks on a map.
  • When the poor people of India need to eat they need fuel to cook with, resulting in the deforestation of the tigerís natural environment.
  • When the tigers lose their natural habitat they start to look to getting food by other means, such as killing the peopleís sacred cows, resulting in the killing of the tigers.
  • When people in other countries purchase tiger products, such as bone pills and furs, they are contributing to the poaching of tigers. Furthermore, when one mother tiger is killed it is almost inevitable that the cubs will die as well.

Opinion:

After listening to Anthony Marr I got an entirely new perspective on what is happening to the last of our tiger population. Before his presentation I always assumed that, while tigers were an endangered species, we had taken the proper steps in preserving what is left of the population. Now, having seen his slide show, I understand what people are doing and to what extent they are messing things up. Knowing that you canít just go and tell people that they are wrong and to completely change their lifestyle, it is awesome how he has gone in with solar ovens and biogas to give them an alternative to tearing apart the forest.
