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

Student - 21

Summary:

  • "Count on the younger generation to preserve endangered species." There arenít enough animal conservationists today to save the wildlife, but there is potential in the future.
  • The world-wide population of tigers has significantly decreased over the last 100 years. In 1900, there were about 300,000 tigers, now, there are just 4,500. Only five of the eight subspecies remain, not only due to poaching, but also due to the loss of habitat. Forests are being torn down because the wood from the trees is needed to burn and the land is needed to raise cattle. The loss of tigers leads to loss of beauty in the world.
  • Especially in India, alternatives to wood burning need to be placed. By using solar power and sometimes biogas, the tigerís habitat will be preserved, therefore allowing them to survive.
  • Tigers are being killed for unnecessary reasons. Poachers are killing the animals to sell the fur. Some Chinese believe in using parts of the tiger to make medications to better themselves. (Since tigers are so strong and have so many idealistic features, they think if they get some of the tiger in them, they may also take on some of these features.) These acts are illegal, yet still occurring. The government needs to enforce the laws made to save the tigers.

Opinion:

I enjoyed listening to Anthony Marrís presentation. He brought up very interesting facts and statistics. A strong part of his presentation was that he showed us pictures so we could visualize the effects that the loss of the tigers is having on the world. Anyone could come in and tell us about the decease of the tiger population and how it is affecting the world, but the pictures gave him credibility. The map of the world where you could see the spots of the population was very effective in illustrating the problem. He was very passionate about this topic, yet he did not come out and accuse anyone of the problem. He said how a lot of things people do have led to the endangerment of tigers. I like how he offered alternatives rather than just saying "cutting down trees and poaching are wrong". The speech was entertaining because Anthony Marr gave interesting information and once in a while he would make a joke which was funny. I agree with his views, because I think it is important to preserve wildlife and nature.

There were not many weaknesses about the presentation except I thought there should have been time for questions. The video was a little boring, but since it wasnít very long, it didnít really matter.
