Anthony Marr made me think about the environment more because itís honestly not that important to me. I would say that human and animal lives definitely take a priority for me over tree and soil. Mr. Marr made me realize that it is all connected Ė saving the planet and saving the tiger. And to know that it is the peopleís fault really saddens me. All the beef and wood we "need" causes deforestation and grazing to occur and that is what will eventually wipe out the tiger. Itís weird to think that there are only 5 of the 8 subspecies of tiger left, and that if people continue on this destructive path, another will probably disappear while Iím still alive.
Another thing that caught my attention was Marrís prediction that India was headed towards a famine. With the population growing and the cows eating everything I agree that that is were their country is headed.
Strength of his presentation was the slideshow. It gave us a sense that he
was sincerely concerned because he was talking TO us and not AT us. He was
very informed about the topic. A weakness was the video. I think it did
not present anything that Mr. Marr couldnít have accomplished in about 5
sentences before he started the slideshow. Other than that I think he did
an effective job of making us aware of something that is happening on the
other side of the world.
