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.
