Foreign Minister Visits Thailand Tiger Sanctuary

WWN - West Who Foreign Minister Michael Farr visited a tiger sanctuary in Thailand today as part of his visit to Asia.  Thai officials allowed the Foreign Minister to enter and touch a tiger in the preserve.  Farr urged citizens to join organizations that protect tigers.  Margaret Neiderer, West Who Wildlife Director said,  "A hundred years ago there were 100,000 tigers in the wild. Today there about 3,200 left.  We need to do more to protect this animal."

 

Farr arrived in Thailand several days ago as a special envoy of West Who President William Farr to "promote West Who with the people and government of Thailand," said the foreign ministry.

 

According to WWN’s dispatched reporter, the Foreign Minister delayed his trip to Cambodia to be available to the Thai government for meetings to return stability to the country's government.
