Such gorgeous animals, but I also understand starving villagers looking to protect what's theirs. We need to find a way to allow these majestic animals to live in harmony in their native habitats by somehow also support income opportunities to protect them.

And...until you've slogged through muddy, insect-infested tropical forests....you have NO IDEA how miserable it can be! He's a fine person!

There's always a way to treasure our Mother Nature if we're not selfish

Thank you for sharing Cher.
“Tigers are poached for almost every part of their body,” said journalist Sharon Guynup. She and photographer, Steve Winter, know the problem well.

They are authors of the new National Geographic book, "Tigers Forever: Saving the World's Most Endangered Big Cat." They have been photographing and researching tigers in the wild for several years.
