In Eastern zodiac, 2010 is the year of the tiger (not to be confused with UN's Year of Biodiversity). To celebrate this, the WWF has set up a few educational things to teach people about this greatly endangered animal. Since I wrote my first post about tigers, the number of tigers in the wild has gone down by almost half. Pretty scary.
On the WWF tiger site, you will find lots of information about the animal itself, what problems this creature faces, different sub-species, why they are important, and more. They even created a "trouble-spots" map with information on why everyone is involved with the destruction of these creatures. Go check it out to find out the many ways you can help.
