If the tiger canyons will help then I'm in support.

From the article: "He believes that for tiger sanctuaries anywhere in the world to thrive and expand, the rural people who live and survive in the same ecosystems must have some benefit from the catsí presence so he created jobs working for the experiment."

This is so important. I don't believe poachers are inherently evil people, just people trying to survive. By offering an alternative, it's a win for the tigers and a win for the people living in the area. This is a wonderful experiment. I hope it and the tigers thrive, and the concept is expanded for all of the magnificent creatures we humans have brought to the brink of extinction.

Alternatives must be offered to poachers so that poaching becomes something no one ever does again, surely there is a way. Long live tigers!

In this last time the news that I heard from South Africa are not much in what they are really doing to protect animals, anyway we hope! Thanks Cher.
