“Failing to understand the consequences of our inventions while we are in the rapture of our discovery and innovation seems to be a common fault of scientists and technologists: we have long been driven by the overarching desire to know what is the nature of science’s quest, not stopping to notice that the progress to newer and more powerful technologies can take on a life of its own”
-Bill Joy (CoFounder – Sun microsystems)
Tomorrow is International World Tiger Day. However, there is little to celebrate. Less than 3200 Tigers remain in the wild – a hundred years ago there were more than 100000.
The WWF and the Save Our Tigers Initiative are both two good starting points where you can help. If you want to do even more, you can be a responsible visitor to one of India’s tiger sanctuaries – Corbett, Bandhavgarh and Ranthambore to name a few. Tweet, Blog, FaceBook and more importantly, raise your voice to the cause of the tiger.
The majestic Tiger is crying out for help and it’s time we responded. Don’t sit this one out – ACT and ACT NOW. The fate of the Tiger now lies in each of our hands – will we support and help WWF achieve their goal of doubling the number of Tigers in the wild, or will we prove the critics right by allowing this beautiful cat go extinct?
