Mr. Marr has been my favorite speaker out of the ones that we have had so far in class. I enjoyed listening to him speak because he was very passionate about what he is doing, and also very knowledgeable about it. I liked how he talked about the tiger, but he also talked about how he has been helping not only the tigers but the environment around them and the people and villages that surround that environment.
Many of the things in his presentation were shocking to me but I think the most shocking was the 5 or so slides that showed the tigersí habitat disappearing. Some of the tiger subspecies are now extinct because their habitats donít exist any more, and that is just amazing to me that we can just let that happen.
I also like that he is getting kids involved in trying to save the tiger and the environment because I really do think it is up to is what kind of world our kids grow up in, and if we donít do something about this now, then our kids will live in a world less beautiful than ours.
The one thing that really sticks out from Mr. Marrís presentation was the
picture of the tigress with her cubs, then him telling the story about how
the tigress was killed and he matched the roll of tiger skin to her, and
that the cubs had died because their mother was no long there to provide
for them. I just never knew that one bullet could kill three tigers.
