Tuesday, May 10, 2011 began with the T.I.G.E.R.S. Team introducing Doc Antle, Bubbles the elephant, her friends the orangutans and baby tigers to the Evans Home for Children and a local first grade class.
“We were thrilled to be part of this adventure! All of us, kids and adults, will remember our encounter with those gentle creatures for the rest of our lives. The defining similarity among our children is that they have faced many challenging and unhappy experiences in their lives. What an honor to be able to share with them an experience of such a different type, and to know that it made them feel special and appreciated to be a part of it!
Thank you so very much!" (Marc Jaccard, Executive Director of the Evans Home for Children)
The day continued with a High Tea in celebration of the launch of the International Conservation Caucus Foundation's (ICCF) Conservation Council of Nations.
ICCF has brought 30 founding countries together to:
- Build a global network of conservation legislators and diplomats
- Support developing nations in sustainable economic development practices
