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

Student - 20

Summary:

  • About 13 years ago, tigers were considered "doomed". There are only about 150 Siberian tigers left in the wild. Only 5 of 8 subspecies lives.
  • High meat demand is one of causes for loss of forest because of grazing, and the result of overgrazing is extinct species. The animalís habitat is literally eaten away. Climate change, deforestation, and overgrazing all contribute to habitat loss.
    Cannot let captive tiger out into the wild because they do not know how to hunt, raise their young or fight for survival. Also taking the cub away from its mother earlier gives the female a chance to have babies again.
  • People in surrounding areas go into tiger habitat for wood and it affects all animals in the conservatory. You have to show those people their alternatives, not just tell then they canít do that.

Opinion:

Anthony Marr was my favorite speaker to listen to so far. He was a very interesting and intellectual guy, who shared with us his experiences and memories. Anthony talked about what he saw when he went into the tiger reserves, and the devastation to the habitat he had witnessed.

He definitely kept my attention during his presentation, and didnít fail to surprise us with his facts. The video was a really smart thing for him to bring because people can pay attention to what he was saying while they were seeing what he saw. I enjoyed the slides as well, showing how he visited different villages and tried to educate them about tigers and provided the village people with alternatives to their way of fuel and cooking methods. His way of approaching the whole thing was admirable. He didnít force people to agree with him, he just stated his point of view, and tried to complete all areas of the topic. I also liked the slides that show the tiger population declining as human population increased. On top of all his useful information, he then went into how we could help. However, Anthony told us that anyone can speak up and make a difference. All in all, it was a very well put together presentation that I think future poly rad classes should hear.
