When Anthony Marr presented to our class, he was very knowledgeable about the subject. Also, he did a nice job of tying the different animals in, such as bears, tigers and monkeys. Some strengths include knowing the number of endangered animals, and using super-tankers to illustrate how much soil was lost from India every year due to deforestation and overgrazing. Also, he knew a lot about projections into the future. One weakness that Anthony Marr has was telling us his beliefs not only environmentally, but politically.
In all, I was persuaded to support his cause. I agree on the points in his presentation, especially that all are interconnected, and that the extinction of the tiger also means the extinction of other species. Also, the environmental has changed drastically from the way it used to be; now human societies have grown, and the number of wild animals has decreased due to losing their environment to society. There should be a limit of how much society can expand and how much wilderness we can exploit.
I feel that something needs to be done, and Mr. Marr telling us that teenagers and children can change the world is thrilling.
Mr. Marr did a great job at describing his views on the environment.
However, one suggestion I have for him is to inform the class a little
more about his belief on issues other than the environment.
