Leonardo DiCaprio is continuing his campaign to save tigers from extinction by partnering with the International Fund for Animal Welfare’s “2010 Animal Action Week”.  Now in it’s 18th year, the event runs through Sunday and encourages children around the world to speak up and help save animals.

This year’s theme, “Born to be Wild”, highlights the alarming plight of tigers, which are on the brink of extinction in the wild. Habitat loss and poaching have reduced worldwide wild tiger populations from about 100,000 in 1900 to as few as 3,000 today. “Tigers are dangerously close to vanishing forever,” said Mr. DiCaprio, an IFAW Honorary Board Member. “If we don’t want our children to grow up in a world where tigers are extinct, the time for action is now.”

Late last month, it was announced that the 35-year-old actor will be travelling to India sometime in the next few months to bring attention to tiger conservation programs in that country. He hopes to aide in raising more than $20 million to double the worldwide tiger population by 2022.

Why Vegetarianism Makes No Sense From A Moral Perspective

I don’t consider my years as a vegetarian as a stepping-stone or prerequisite to veganism


I hope I win the ‘Pig Farmers of Tomorrow’ contest I entered (I’m vegan)

I think I’ll likely have the most interest in pigs of anyone applying, anyway.


Hopefully Jon & Tracey Stewart use their new farm for vegan education

They’ve promised classes on caring for animals and sustainable agriculture, so vegan 101 would be a great place to start.
