Coordinator Report – Devin Saari

Great day today even though it rained most of the day! We had just enough people to get everything done thanks to Brittany Mira and Michael Heap for coming in to help out on late notice!!

Fred Pagan and Mazz worked in the rehab cage #2 they weed eated and mowed the entire cage so now it’s ready for Alpha to go in.¬†Food-prep was finished before lunch thanks to Megan Myers, Mazz, and Fred Pagan.¬†Fred Pagan did the pm supplements and snacks.

Moe Mahamud and Christina Cochard cleaned up the rat room and made sure it stays nice and dry. Fred Pagan, Moe Mahamud, and Christina Cochard also started to organize the project storage shed but it still needs to be finished. Michael Heap worked today clearing up a lot of the clogged drains all around the sanctuary and fixed the pump by the rat room!

Thanks to everyone who helped out on this very wet day!

Video in Spanish

“1. A las personas les encanta ver a los cachorros de tigre, pero estos podr√≠an desaparecer de la naturaleza en los pr√≥ximos 5 a√Īos.

2. En 1900 había 100,000 tigres en la naturaleza, pero actualmente hay menos de 4,000

3. Tener como mascotas a los cachorros de tigre es una de las razones por las que se est√°n extinguiendo.

4. Y es una vida terrible para los cachorros. Aquí está el por qué:

5. Las personas ven como manejan a los cachorros en programas de entrevistas.

6. Entonces pagan para verlos, acariciarlos y tomarse fotos con ellos.

7. No saben que los cachorros son alejados de sus madres al nacer para que no tengan el apego a su madre.

8. Esto es un tormento tanto para la madre como para el cachorro.

9. Los cachorros est√°n privados de la leche materna que tiene anticuerpos que los protegen de enfermedades.

10. Se les priva de dormir para que est√©n disponibles cuando los clientes quieren acariciarlos, lo que debilita a√ļn m√°s su sistema inmunol√≥gico.

11. Para que se queden quietos cuando son acariciados y les tomen fotos, son castigados físicamente cuando solo están haciendo lo que es natural para ellos, como correr y saltar.

12. Los cachorros solo se pueden usar durante aproximadamente 12 semanas antes de que puedan arrancar el dedo de un ni√Īo.

13. Nadie documenta lo que les sucede a los cachorros despu√©s de ese tiempo. Simplemente desaparecen, se estima que desaparecen 200 cachorros por a√Īo.

14. Algunos terminan en patios traseros, otros en zoológicos. Nadie sabe cuántos mueren.

15. Los zoológicos legítimos no permiten esto. Hay solo unos pocos zoológicos que lo hacen.

16. Los zoológicos de carretera dicen que las caricias a los cachorros ayudan a la conservación, pero esto es una mentira.

17. Así es como tener cachorros de tigre como mascota afecta a la naturaleza:

18. Los tigres est√°n siendo saqueados en la naturaleza, para usar sus partes ilegalmente para hacer alfombras, vino de hueso de tigre y medicamentos falsos.

19. Hay países asiáticos que quieren legalizar la venta de partes de tigre. Si se les permite hacer esto, incluso más tigres serán saqueados.

20. El Departamento de Estado de los Estados Unidos intenta liderar a otras naciones para oponerse a la venta de partes de tigre.

21. Pero nuestra credibilidad se ve desafiada al se√Īalar que no sabemos d√≥nde est√°n nuestros tigres o cu√°ntos de ellos se usan para partes.

22. Si quieres un mundo donde los tigres vivan libres, tenemos que acabar con la práctica de tener cachorros de tigres como mascotas y la posesión privada de ellos.
