    Help us save the tigers

    I’m writing to you about the tiger population. I’m a middle school student at Orange Center School and I worked on a project about tigers and how they will become extinct if we don’t act. It surprised me to learn that the tiger population in the wild is less than 1,411.

    I want to do something, so I plan to start a collection. Even a small bit of donations can do a lot for the population of tigers and their habitat. The tigers are becoming extinct and a lot of it is because of humans. The poachers that are hunting them are really taking a toll and other people are taking away their habitat by building more parts of cities, homes and businesses. Global warming is taking some habitat, too. The tigers’ biggest problem is humans.

    If you want to help with this cause, then please send or bring donations to Orange Center School, 357 U.S. Route 302, Orange, VT 05649. All donations will go to the World Wildlife Fund. The school is open between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. Donations will be collected until May 16. It’s our responsibility to make sure all species have a chance to survive.
