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

Summary:

  • We need to protect and save the tigers. In order to save them, we have to save their environment. Trying to repopulate the tiger population using captivity does not work, because captive tigers donít know how to hunt, raise their young and survive in nature.
  • Conservation is what they teach the tribes they encountered. They teach them to make solar cookers and use cow manure to generate biogas a s a fuel source. They also provide villagers with needed medicines and teach them the basics at schools. Lastly, they teach them to protect the tigers.
  • Poachers need to be stopped. Animal trade is the second largest illegal trade worldwide, next to only the drug trade. People are killing tigers for their pelt and bones, and by killing one tiger, you could be killing many.

Opinion:

I thought that Mr. Marrís presentation was extremely informative and agree with what he said about conservation. The statement he made that had the most impact on me was, "If we canít save even the tiger, I donít know what we can save." This is a great point because also, as he said, the tiger is an icon for conservation; it is one of the most revered animals. This resonated with me because more and more animal species are becoming extinct every day, and there is a huge increase in deforestation and the destruction of nature in general. It is important that we realize this and do something about it, and that is why I agree with Mr. Marrís overall goal of conservation. We need to practice conservation not only to protect the tigers and their habitat, but all the species that are about to become endangered or extinct.

As I said before, Mr. Marrís presentation was extremely informative. He knew what he was talking about and was able to answer every question that was thrown at him. I enjoyed his slideshow, which was helpful because it showed the problems instead of him just telling us verbally about them. I would definitely recommend him coming back to speak to the class again and I hope that his message made people think because I know that it made me think a lot.
