There are only 400 Sumatran Tigers left in the world! Today you’ll see #SumatranTiger and #EndangeredSong rippling through social media. The reason for this is that “Portugal. The Man,” in conjunction with the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute and National Zoo, has released a song to bring attention to this sorry news.
To bring the plight of the tigers home, they have released only 400 copies of the song – on degradable medium. Eventually the recording will be lost – unless the people with the original record it in digital form. If the people make the digital recording and do not share it, only 400 people in the world will ever hear the song.
For those just settling down with their morning coffee: The records will disappear just as surely as the #SumatranTiger will unless we take steps to save it, share it, and spread this news.
Here’s the video explaining the whole thing. Meanwhile, jump on over to your social media account and help a #SumatranTiger. Here’s a link to one digital recording of the song.
