no i give them about 5 years. sad tho they are my fav animal :/
They are mine too.. I understand the importance of keeping them in zoos but I hate the fact that they are in captivity and that they aren't safe in the wild either. A friend of mine recently went to the Tiger temple in Bangkok and for some reason I felt sick looking at her photos in which she is walking a tiger on a leash.
I once saw a commercial for "save starving children, send money" and "save starving tigers, send money" back to back. My brain said....there's a solution there, and it doesnt involve sending any money...
...never let a little thing like a fact get in the way of a good theory!
I hate reading things like this. It's the same with elephants for their ivory, rhinos for their horns......the list goes on. When will people leave the wild animals on our planet alone, just let them live.

When there's no more demand or money in it. Poaching had become big business because of the demand for various animals parts that many superstistitious people believe hold magical properties. In Africa they are now using helicopters, AK-47s and rocket-propelled grenades to poach elephants. http://animallawonli...-elephants.html
