eye of the tiger

there are only around 400 sumatran tigers left in the wild - and their habitation is heavily under threat. greenpeace 'tiger eye' activists are traveling around sumatra bearing witness to the deforestation threatening their environment, and calling on the indonesian government to take action.

Around 1.1 million hectares of indonesia's rainforests are being destroyed each year - if this deforestation not stop, the sumatran tiger could follow its predecessors the Javanese and Bali tigers, and become extinct.

there are five tiger eye activists undertaking the journey - read more about their mission on the greenpeace website

off the mat and into the world founder seane corn occupied wall street this week to lead a crowd in a chant stating:

“Our intention for being here is to support with all the men, women , and children, who because of lack of opportunity, dissapointment, dissatisfaction, and anger, are finally feeling the need to rally together as a community to exercise their first amendment right, Freedom of speech, as well as Freedom of Assembly. To speak to truth that is perpetually separating all Americans from happiness, health, and prosperity. What is happening out here is yoga because it is about connection, community, unity, love, truth, happiness. This is why we are here. To lend our voice. To show our support, and to show what we stand for not against. We stand for unity. We stand for opportunity. We stand for equality. We stand for love. The most important thing we need to remember is that this matters. You matter. We matter. All of us matter. It’s a bout 100% love, 100%unity, 100% peace, 100% of the time.”
