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

Summary:

  • "Tigers are one of the most revered animals on the planet. If we cannot save even the tiger, what can we save?" Anthony Marr talked about how hard it is to save the tigers, although many people love tigers. He says it is up to us; we are the future.
  • You cannot rest on your laurels for long, because if one thing gets fixed, there is still a lot more that needs to be done. Have gave the example of how the number of the tigers went up when they made it illegal to hunt them, but then the numbers decreased again because of poaching.
  • When in third world countries, not only does Mr. Marrís team educate the locals about tiger conservation, they also help the people preserve their forests by introducing non-wood-burning technology, such as biogas and solar cooking. They do not give the villagers any devices, but instead show them how to make these devices out of locally available material; this way, the villagers do not become dependent on us.

Opinion:

I enjoyed having Anthony Marr as a speaker. Before he came, I never realized that tigers were that close to extinction. I also never realized how hard it really is to help bring them back from the verge of extinction. One of the reasons the presentation was good was because you could tell Anthony Marr was very passionate about what he is doing. I also think that itís cool that he understands that not everybody is going to become a vegan, but is still able to explain its pros and cons without pushing it upon us. I enjoyed hearing about his cause, because this earth is the only one. Anthony Marr was able to share with us a lot of information, and was very honest with us. For example, when he talked about donating money, he told us to be careful, because a lot of organizations have much too high an overhead. I also thought it was cool that he also goes into third world countries and help out there too.

Not many people would think that it would be necessary to improve the environment there, because it is not apparent. When people think of third world countries, they just want to give them money, but it does not necessarily help them, because they may not know what to do with it that could be effective.
