Tigers or Toilet Paper? You Don’t Have to Choose.

WWF Tiger and Toilet Paper

“The toilet paper on your grocery store shelves may have a direct impact on the 400 Sumatran tigers left in the wild.” Image courtesy of WWF. Please buy only FSC- certified and recycled-fiber paper products

The green dense rain forests on the Indonesian island of Sumatra are the only place in the entire world where elephants, tigers, rhinos and orangutans live together.  But, since 1985, Sumatra has lost over half of its forest to the pulp and paper and palm oil industries. With only an estimated 400  Sumatran tigers left in the wild, we must all stand together to protect the last remaining habitat for our big cousins.

The World Wildlife Federation, (WWF) hunted down the connection between the United States toilet paper and tissue products and the destruction of tropical forests on the other side of the world.  What WWF found out is that the end products from the deforestation of the Sumatran forests are showing up on the United States supermarket shelves and in restaurants, hotels, schools and homes.

Cat and Leopard Don’t See Shadow. Ready for Spring

Cat and Leopard Don’t See Shadow.  Ready for Spring!

It is Groundhog Day!

Earlier this morning Lazy Leopard and I had a chat with Punxsutawney Phil and he told us that  at 7:25 a.m. this very morning he did in fact see his own shadow and that means there will be 6 more weeks of winter.

If Phil ‘s forecast is correct, it would mean that the unseasonably mild weather  we have been experiencing would be coming to an end and the cold, snow and dark days of winter will be stopping by for a nice long visit.

As you can see in the image of Punxsutawney Phil below,  he looks quite serious about his prediction.

Lazy Leopard and I are willing to admit  we are not experienced shadow-seers like Phil, but we thought we would ask for a second opinion.  So, we checked in with Charles G. Hogg, better known as State Island Chuck, from the Staten Island Zoo.
