Original link: https://sehseh.substack.com/p/398

Good night,

Today is Global Tiger Day to raise awareness of endangered “big cats” – at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries, there were about 100,000 tigers in the world; however, due to deforestation, habitat loss and poaching, etc. Factors, by 2010, the population has collapsed to an all-time low of 3,200, which also prompted more than 10 wild tiger distribution countries in the world to sign declarations, looking at the next Tiger Year – that is, 2022 to double the number of tigers🐯

With the arrival of the “Year of the Tiger”, Nepal is the only country that has achieved and surpassed the target . The number of wild tigers in the country has nearly tripled from 2009, but the conservation achievements have also brought new challenges to manage human-tiger conflicts – At least 16 people were killed in tiger attacks last year, according to government figures.

The 22nd British Association Games took place in Birmingham, England. At the opening ceremony, Tom Daley, a famous diver and four-way gold medalist, held the “Queen’s Scepter”, and chess players held high the LGBTQ flag. Entering together – this is the first time an athlete has been able to wave a rainbow flag on the podium, and what’s even more remarkable is that same-sex relationships are still illegal in more than half of the 54 participating countries.

“LGBT+ athletes have to be safe and feel comfortable being who they are without fear of persecution or death.” Daly, 28, who is married and has a son with her husband, said he had traveled to Pakistan, Jamaica, etc. National competitions where the law prohibits same-sex relationships feel like an “illegal” existence and are not safe outside the field, and I hope to speak out on behalf of the sports world: “If I am privileged to feel this way, I can’t imagine the British Federation. the daily life of the LGBT+ community.”
