While two members of the International Tiger Coalition mentioned in the article withdrew from the group, the fact is that 41 stellar non profits, including Big Cat Rescue, remain committed to saving the tiger. The World Bank has not defined the type of initiative that it wishes to implement and at this point the ITC is congratulating the World Bank on the announcement of a pledge to start a process that will create a tiger initiative. The ITC is not currently endorsing an initiative by the World Bank because no set initiative has been defined. Those who withdrew and are condemning the World Bank for it's new plan in the press haven't even heard what the plan is yet, as it won't be announced until next week.
You have to let go of the past if you want to embrace the future.
For the cats,
Carole Baskin, CEO of Big Cat Rescue
