Summary:

  • The speaker Anthony Marr is a conservationist from Canada who specializes in tigers. He is famous for his work and his been featured on specials that have aired on the Discovery Channel.
  • He spoke mainly about different subspecies of tigers and the imminent danger they face. He also displayed a graphic showing the drastic decrease in the tiger population over the last 100 years or so. Many of the subspecies have since died out.
  • Mr. Marr also showed a slide show of India and its tiger population that he has witnessed from his expeditions. He described why the tiger has diminished, from the British hunters in the past, to todayís poachers who just want to make a few bucks.
  • Mr. Marr also discussed how the population of India is growing rapidly and the need for people to be more ecologically friendly. He has tried to show the people techniques that donít harm the environment such as using solar or biogas energy sources.

Opinion:

I found the presentation to be very informative and interesting. I share many of his opinions on the environment. I feel that if we donít as humankind come together to take better care of our world that there will not be a healthy world for future generations to live in. Over the last century we have destroyed much of our planet which we cannot take back. I think that Mr. Marr was very solution oriented and that that was a strength of his presentation. I believe we should create more programs to educate people throughout the world about using other energy sources such as biogas.

I especially liked when he incorporated stories of his own adventures. One thing I found troubling is how much of our landscape has become desert from climate change, deforestation, and overgrazing. We need to find a way to limit deforestation to protect all the species that live in forests such as the Amazon. In conclusion, I feel the presentation opened many peopleís eyes on the ecological problems we are currently facing.
