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

Student - 12

Summary:

  • Only 5 of 8 different subspecies of tigers are left in the world today. Through deforestation, hunting tigers for sport, and making them into medicine, the tigers are becoming extinct. There isnít enough time given for the tigers to re-populate to catch up with the number of them being killed.
  • "External pressure is more effective than internal pressure." It is more effective if another country steps in and points out that what you are doing is wrong. Marr. Being an Asian Canadian, is trying to put external pressure on China for selling tigers in bottles for medication.
  • India could possibly see famine very soon. Since they are clearing out all their trees, their soil condition is increasingly declining. Each year, India is losing 6 billion tons of soil during the monsoon season. Which means it will become a desert, which will be followed by a famine.

Opinion:

Overall I enjoyed Mr. Marrís presentation. I didnít like how it was so long, though; I personally cannot sit still for a whole period, let alone two. Also, at times it was hard to understand what he was saying, so hopefully some of my statistics were accurate. I did like how he was surprisingly witty, at first glance he didnít seem like the type. Iím glad he addressed why we canít put captive tigers into the wild. I was thinking about that, but when he listed off the reasons of why it would fail, it made a lot of sense. We might as well keep as many tigers with us alive as possible, since in a few years there may be none left. I might be going to India with my mom in March; I am interested to see the kind of deforestation and thing of that nature when I go.
