The Great White Sharks that grace our oceans are in trouble and need our help. They are being killed at an alarming rate for their fins that are used for soup. If we lose these wonderful mammals who have been in the oceans for millions of years, it will have a devastating affect on our ecosystems. The Wild Kratt's brothers that appear on PBS Channel 11, did an episode on sharks. They are educating others through their series on various animal species and about the important role they play in our World. The Great White Sharks are our brothers as the Indians believe. They have the right to be here and we need to learn to appreciate them for the majestic creatures that they are.
Tigers are magnificent animals, however, they are in trouble as their numbers are dwindling. This is due to poaching in Asia where they are killed for their bones for medicine. We need to help SAVE the TIGERS before it is too late and they are gone forever. We need to educate others on how these beautiful animals have feelings also. Tiger mothers are great with their newborn cubs and very protective. If we lose Tigers, we will lose ourselves in the interim, because each of us is connected on this Planet. These animals deserve our respect. Many countries revere the Tiger such as India. The Egyptians 3,000 years ago honored these cats and would never even think of killing them. Today, our World is full of Greed and disregard for the animals that we share this Planet with. We cannot just believe that we are the only ones who deserve to live on this Earth, that would be a selfish way to think. We need to live in peace and harmony with our fellow brothers, the animals. We can learn a lot from them if we would just observe them in their natural habitat.
