Nominate “TONY” for a Shorty Award!!   Leave a comment

shorty two

Do you tweet? Do you want to help raise awareness for Tony and the est. 5,000 plus privately owned tigers in the U.S.  like him? Nominate Tony for a Shorty Award! Twitter has been a very effective platform for networking Tony’s story and the serious issue of privately owned tigers and big cats in the United States and how we can help by supporting legislation – The Big Cats and Public Safety Protection Act – to end private ownership of these magnificent yet dangerous animals. Captive tigers suffer in roadside zoos, circuses, and traveling exhibitions; tigers cubs are bred for profit and used in photo & feeding ops, when they are no longer longer “cute” and “legal” to exploit, and turn into 300 to 500 lb. dangerous cats, they face years of captive life in roadside zoos/exhibits and pseudo-sanctuaries. Others are bred to produce more cubs, end up in canned hunts, or are killed and sold on the black market.

The Shorty Awards are a worldwide effort to engage hundreds of thousands of Twitter users to identify the best people – (and tiger) – and organizations on social media. The 7 nominees with the most nominations in this category (nonhuman) will become finalists after the nomination period ends which is Feb. 18th 2014.

“The Shorty Awards honor the best of social media. They recognize the people and organizations producing great, impactful content on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, YouTube, Foursquare and the rest of the social web. Millions of people visit the Shorty Awards site every year to support their favorite social media content creators by tweeting nominations.”

Nominate Tony:

  • On Twitter: Send a tweet that starts with:

I nominate @TonyTiger2000 for a Shorty Award in #nonhuman because…

Votes must have a reason after “because…” or they won’t count!

shorty one

Note: Retweeted nominations and tweets starting with @replies do not count toward the rankings. Voting for the same person in the same category more than once just replaces the text of your original vote; it does not count as an additional vote.

Please share this post – easy share buttons below –  and  video.   Nominate Tony and help keep his plight and that of captive tigers known worldwide! Thanks!

Global Tiger Day July 29 2013   Leave a comment

tiger day wwf Tigers are magnificent majestic big cats who deserve our utmost respect, protection and advocacy. On Global Tiger Day we hope to raise awareness for tigers, both wild and captive and support efforts to help both.

WILD TIGERS

Sadly there are only an estimated 3,200 of Tony’s “cousins” remaining in the wild,  a decline of 97% since the turn of the century.

Six sub-species remain: Amur, Bengal, Sumatran, Indo-Chinese, Malayan, South China (functionally extinct – has not been sighted in the wild for more than 25 years); Three are extinct: Bali, Caspian and Javan.

Poaching, human-tiger conflict, loss of habitat and prey are the main threats to tigers. Learn more about wild tigers and how we can help support efforts to save them:

http://wwf.panda.org/what_we_do/endangered_species/tigers/

  • CAPTIVE U.S. TIGERS

Tony is just one of the estimated 5,000 or more privately owned tigers in the United States and his plight has definitely raised awareness to this serious issue. Captive U.S. tigers are used in roadside zoos and attractions, photo ops and exhibitions, entertainment shows and circuses, pseudo-sanctuaries, bred for profit or are owned as “pets.” From IFAW: “Private possession of big cats is a legal patchwork: 30 states ban private possession, 14 states allow possession with a permit, and 6 states have absolutely no restrictions on private possession at all.” ( http://www.ifaw.org/united-states/big-cat-advocates-map )

  • HR 1998 ~ THE BIG CATS AND PUBLIC SAFETY PROTECTION ACT

One of the most important ways we can help tigers like Tony and other captive big cats in the United States is to support HR 1998 ~ The Big Cats and Public Safety Protection Act. This bill would prohibit the private possession and breeding of captive big cats in the United States except at highly-qualified facilities like accredited zoos where they can be properly cared for and safely managed. It would only allow breeding at accredited zoos, along with some research or educational institutions.

Dear Congressman [or Congresswoman] _________,

As a constituent concerned about improving the lives of tens of thousands of Big Cats in the United States, I’m writing to urge you to support and co-sponsor HR 1998, the “Big Cats and Public Safety Protection Act.”

I strongly encourage you to do everything you can to help pass this critical legislation, which would prohibit the illegal trade of wildlife species and the private ownership or sale of exotic animals. Additionally, the bill would ban individuals from keeping the animals in poor living conditions and protect the public from dangerous situations.

I hope you will support and co-sponsor HR 1998. Thank you.

Sincerely,
[Your Name & Address]
