"You currently cannot send a green star to Chaz..." I so hope they really do catch the poachers very soon and put them in a place where they can poach no more.

"Meanwhile, WWF species conservation manager Reuben Clements said the Federal Government needed to set up an anti-poaching task force to secure key tiger-populated areas in the long run." I hope in the meantime, WWF will give some extra funds to this project, as most governments seem to be very slow to move on such topics, espeically poor governments. It's great to read that some poachers are being caught and that cameras are now in place for monitoring the area. Let's hope this is the turnaround the tigers need.

I have a huge (and I mean HUGE) poster of a Bengal tiger on the wall opposite my bed. My last thought before I close my eyes at night is a prayer for their protection.

I really like the idea of a death penalty for poachers, people in possession of snares, and anyone in possession of any animal parts at all of any endangered or protected species. Not only would it be just and a deterrent, but it would also ensure there were no repeat offenders. People are poaching tigers into extinction and the entire human race will be the poorer for it as will all future generations. This is what the death penalty is for!!
