Did you know that 4 tigers are killed every week and that they are about to disappear. http://www.tigertime.info/ If you visit this website you can learn a lot more. Please do what you can to help?
Quoted from the website:
"If we can’t save the tiger, then how can we save ourselves?"
- We have to act now or this iconic animal could be extinct in less than 20 years
- Man is solely responsible for the slaughter of the tiger for commercial gain. In the natural world the tiger's only predator is man
Obviously it's man's fault but the problem is much bigger than putting blame on the people that kill them. Poverty is the blame, desire for wealth, desire for material things. Tigers are going extinct but we will be next if the world doesn't change.
Seeing that it's Thanksgiving in Canada this weekend, there are so many things that come to mind. We have a lot to be grateful for, yes that's so true, but there are many things that we need to change, and so I am grateful for the knowledge, wisdom and courage to try to share what I can and try to make a difference, no matter how small. What are you going to do? What are you grateful for?
