We’re sitting on a rare time when rare animals are in the news. One of the most famous is the Bengal tiger, which is more than 2,000 years old. It’s been extinct for the last 14 years. The current population of tigers is somewhere around 900, and they’ve been protected by the U.S. government since the 1970s.
The U.S. government is not exactly known for its support of endangered animals…
This is especially true for cats. Its been a long time since a U.S. government agency has tried to protect endangered cats…
Well, yes and no. The U.S. government has a long history of protecting cats. That history includes the government’s “Mammoth Zoo” in Kentucky. And of course, there are some U.S. government sponsored programs that have protected endangered critters. But this program is not exactly a government sponsored program. Instead, it’s run by the Humane Society of the United States and is funded entirely by the U.S. government.
Yes. It is a rare animal, so rare that it is considered a national monument in the United States. In fact, the Humane Society is one of the only organizations that is allowed to protect the species. The last U.S. president to try and protect the species was Ronald Reagan. The last president to try and protect the species was Bill Clinton.
And the only reason why is due to the fact that the Humane Society has been trying to save the species from extinction for over 15 years. Every single one of the last 7 presidents failed.
The Humane Society is the only one that has been attempting to save the species since 2000. In 2002, the president, Clinton, finally decided that the animal was a national monument. In 2009, Congress approved the designation. There’s only been one other attempt to save the animals, which was a successful campaign in the 90’s. So, for one reason or another, we have a unique opportunity to save the species.
We’re working on a way to help the species. We’ve been working on finding a way to communicate with the animals and sending a message to them that we want to help. We want to show the animals that we are interested, and that we care. We’re also trying to find a way to make sure that the animals continue to survive long enough to be able to give us a chance to save them.
A rarest animal in the world? Yes. The chances of survival of an animal like this are very slim. For reasons unknown to us, it has been going extinct for over 10,000 years. The odds of an animal like this living long enough to be considered extinct are pretty high. In fact, we estimate that the chance of an animal like this surviving to the point where we can give it a chance to survive and become a viable species is about one in every 1,000.
A rare animal? Well, it’s not exactly rare to have an animal that is extinct. There are over 300 animals that have been declared extinct in the last 100 years. And they all have one thing in common: They’re really, really, really rare, because they were all killed by humans.
