"Broken Tail: A Tiger’s Last Journey" ~ Full Episode - PBS Nature | cats | Scoop.it

Broken Tail: A Tiger’s Last Journey http://www.pbs.org/wnet/nature/episodes/broken-tail-a-tigers-last-journey/full-episode/6384/

Won top honor at the 2011 Jackon Hole Wildlife Film Festival, known as the Oscars of nature films! Broken Tail won Best of Festival, Best Script, and Best Human/Wildlife Interactions at the 2012 International Wildlife Film Festival!

The tiger known as Broken Tail was born in Ranthambhore National Park in northern India, a vast, natural reserve for a wide variety of Indian wildlife, but especially famous for its Bengal tigers. Historically revered in Indian tradition, tigers in the area were once protected by maharajahs, and then by government sanctuaries and conservation projects. But poachers have proven to be nearly unstoppable over the years, and tigers have struggled to survive, even with the protection of the park. At one point, there were as few as 26 tigers left in the reserve, and today, the fate of each and every tiger is important to the species as a whole. Conservation efforts have been intensified in the face of the crisis, and the struggle continues. Broken Tail: A Tiger’s Last Journey is the story of the life and death of a tiger destined for greatness, who may still lead the way to a better future for those of his kind. Buy the DVD. This film premiered February 20, 2011....  http://www.pbs.org/wnet/nature/episodes/broken-tail-a-tigers-last-journey/full-episode/6384/

UNDER THE RADAR: The New Tigers - The Badger

UNDER THE RADAR: The New Tigers - The Badger | cats | Scoop.it

For several years I have been impressed with the quality of the pop music produced by bands from Finland.  The current population of the country is less than 5.5 million, yet albums by three Finnish bands (Cats on Fire, The New Tigers, Black Twig) made my top 50 albums last year (list).  One of those bands, The New Tigers, is back with their sophomore LP, The Badger.  And I project that this album will be in my 2013 top album.

Those of us who are fans of The New Tigers can celebrate that the band did not change their approach in craftingThe Badger, although it seems to me that there is a bit more discipline in the performances and sophistication to the songwriting.    As is the case with many other Scandinavian guitar pop bands, there is plenty of jangle with their harmonized vocals and engaging melodies.  But the distinctive features of The New Tigers are the infusion of goodly amounts of fuzz into the mix, as well as the structure of the songs.  The band does not subscribe to the under-three-minutes approach to pop songs.

March 12, 2013 - BBC News Science & Environment

Poison is emerging as the latest and most dangerous threat to the survival of the last remaining wild tigers in Thailand.

Poachers targeting tigers for their valuable skins and body parts are turning to insecticide as an easy way to kill the iconic animals.

In what's regarded as Thailand's most important tiger sanctuary, wildlife rangers report mounting evidence of gangs setting traps with fresh meat, laced with poison, as bait.... http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-21618346
