Heal Our Planet Earth

Educational Outreach: Secondary (High) Schools and Universities
Anthony Marr is a meticulous and educating speaker. I had been told about the destruction of the rainforest and the poverty that plagues third world countries previously, but never had been as compelled to do something about it as when Mr. Marr spoke to us. He displayed a genuine passion and sense of concern for not only the preservation of our earth and its great creatures, such as the tiger, but for the education and thus, improvement of primitive and poverty-stricken civilizations. I found it very admirable that Mr. Marr divides his time between speaking on the issues at hand, as well as doing something about them.
Although Mr. Marr spoke for a large amount of time, he kept my attention with his witty jokes and comments, interesting stories and vivid slides. He had an impressive and immense amount of knowledge about tigers and various cultures, as well as direct facts on things like how many cows the U.S. alone consumes in one year (35 million). I would have liked for us to have more time for questions afterward, and I found it ironic that the class that did have time to do so did not take advantage of it.
Mr. Marr was extremely inspiring in the sense that I want to get more
involved with global issues and do my part to help worldwide, as opposed
to only taking part in local charities or issues. He made other people’s
unfortunate (to say the least) living conditions very real to me and also
made me realize how lucky I am to have things such as a stove or clean
water or medicine, things that I definitely take for granted. I hope Mr.
Marr continues to assist in educating people on the issues, as well as
solve them, and I wish him the best of luck in doing so. I too believe
that one person can make a difference, and I hope to one day travel and
help people the way Mr. Marr is doing.
