T is for ...

"Tiger ,tiger burning bright
In the forests of the night,
What immortal hand or eye
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?"
(William Blake)

Will I ever see a tiger in the wild? I doubt it. But, maybe I have seen the parents of tigers who have been released back into the wild. Many Australian zoos are participating in world wide breeding programs. Symbio Wildlife Park just South of Sydney has a breeding pair of Sumatran tigers.
Deforestation resulting from the production of palm oil is a major threat to the Sumatran tiger.
These pics were taken at Symbio.
