Summary:

  • Anthony Marr promoted animal conservation, mainly giving details on tigers, which was considered "doomed" by TIME magazine in 1993.
  • We are losing dozens of species around the world every day.
  • The animals/wildlife trade is the second biggest illegal trade in the world, right behind the drug trade.
  • He is the founder of Heal Our Planet Earth (HOPE), and of the BETíR (Bear, Elephant, Tiger and Rhinoceros) Campaign which has the goal to put an end to the slaughter of endangered or threatened species for any reason, including medicine.
  • It is thought that in India in the 1800s there were about 80,000 tigers, in the 1940s there were still 30,000, and in the 1970s, still 15,000, but a tiger census in 1972 counted only 1,800 tigers, leading to the beginning of Project Tiger.

Opinion:

I enjoyed Mr. Marrís presentation. The slideshow gave a lot of visual reference to what he was talking about. His information and background knowledge exceeded what I had expected. I have always cared a lot about animals and conservation. I liked how he not only focused on saving the animals themselves, but more on saving their homes and the habitat that surrounds them in order for their population to flourish. He talked about how larger animals need more square-miles per animal to live, meaning that the more square mile of wilderness we can save, the more large animals will prosper. One of my favorite points that he talked about was on his travels he thought the natives to build their own solar ovens, and didnít just hand it to them, to prevent dependency. They taught them to be self-sufficient and learn to live on their own resources.

This idea will not only help the people to live an easier, more productive live, but help save the plants and wildlife around their villages. The presentation feels a little too long at times, but he always got back on track and connected all his thoughts and ideas together.

I am extremely impressed with what he is doing and his passion for the tigers and animals in general. I really like that he gave time to answer questions in the end, knowing from the last class they didnít have as much time. I like to hear if the presenter can answer questions that werenít as scripted and planned as the actual presentation. He obviously knew his stuff and answered the questions with intelligent and thorough answers. Mr. Marrís presentation is one of my favorites so far.
