Saving the Tiger: Already Too Late? is one panel in the three three-part lecture series, Safari of the Mind, which was hosted by 92Y on January 16, 2011. Presented by Dr. Thomas Kaplan, Panthera's Chairman and Co-founder, and Dr. Alan Rabinowitz, Panthera's CEO and Co-Founder, this panel examined the fragile state of tiger populations in Asia, now estimated to number less than 3,200, and whether it is too late to save this enigmatic species from extinction. Today, genetic revelations indicate that hope for tigers is precipitously fading, but science has surprised us before.
