As Global Tiger Day gets flooded it’s important to keep reality in check…

My global tiger day has been mainly about making sure equipment isn’t damaged as water levels rise. It’s a concern in many places and I couldn’t access some areas, we may have to use a raft tomorrow, there’s concern for the leopard refuge station as well. The before and after photos show where it was easier but it was a lot of slogging in flooded conditions. The Tweet at the bottom of this short post is a reality check. I’ve been away from all the noise that usually occurs on Global Tiger Day, an alternative name may be Global Bullshit Day because there is certainly a lot of back slapping when the reality is the situation is still damn serious and we all still have to do a lot better. There’s a lot going on, I’ll update in about a week but right now I’m dry again I’m about to follow up on a leopard skin seizure today in HP. My spotted mate gets pretty much ignored on Global Tiger Day. Look, there are some good things happening, there are people really trying but tigers and leopards are still under serious threat…
