Sumatran Tiger nearly extinct

Not a tree story, but...another species might be going extinct soon. Here's what I got in my mailbox from a preservation group: Dear Ryan, There are only 400 Sumatran tigers remaining in the world and they’re in serious trouble. Only 400 Sumatran tigers are left in the world. Just 80 years ago, ther...
