PBS - Remotely Connected . "Cheetah Orphans" | PBS

PBS - Remotely Connected . "Cheetah Orphans" | PBS | Everything Else | Scoop.it
Remotely Connected is a guest blogger project PBS is conducting this fall, in connection with the fall TV season. We've invited a small, diverse group of bloggers to present their perspectives on major PBS programs in an open forum.
etallia's insight:

In this regard, "The Cheetah Orphans" reveals both the blessing and the curse of our empathy for other animals. When we know so little about them, it seems our ignorance endangers them before we realize what is happening. But, when we connect with these beings on a fundamentally personal level--realizing that they have intrinsic interests, that they value their lives and the lives of their loved ones--we are moved to do something to help them. But what is the right thing to do, and how? Does our involvement help or hurt?
