The White Tiger is an incredibly impressive creature. I visited a humane zoo in Morelia, Michoacan, Mexico and was inspired by this tiger. He was soundly sleeping, unaware of the perils of his tiger relatives. All tigers are losing habitat at an alarming rate, as well as being poached. If we obviously-snoozing humans do not wake up and do something about this tragedy, tigers will disappear forever.The White Tiger was especially chosen because they are extinct in the wild and are only found now in zoos. Is this the only place we want all of Earth’s tigers to be found?
