A rather grim sight at the Australia Zoo to be sure: a box of traditional Chinese medicine containing tiger is displayed at the zoo's "tiger temple". It is medicines like this that are dooming the tiger to extinction if we don't do something about it. However, the good news is that the Australia Zoo is working hard to educate people about this problem in addition to raising important funds. The more we know about the threats that face the tiger, the better equipped we as individuals are to stopping them!
Do your part and spend a little time researching tigers for yourself!
