In the theme park, Dreamworld, Gold Coast, (South-Eastern Queensland) are these fine Sumatran tiger cubs, Shanti, Jaya and Ndari who were born last June as part of an international breeding program to save this critically endangered species.
At Dreamworld's Tiger Island, the animals, including elegant gold and white Bengal Tigers, play and interact with their handlers in activities that are designed to raise money to finance their care and to save the species.
Two recent reports of the Sumatran tiger tell of their cruel attack on the farmers. Wonderful Jungle habitat is lost in Sumatera and land clearing is unstoppable and the Indonesian government is not helping.
Of course, our country is no example either when it comes to land clearing.
And at present, 60km of coastline, north of Brisbane, is in crisis from an oil spill. A ship's fuel tank was ruptured in a storm.
