Hello Dr. Rabinowitz. Thank you for doing this AMA. I have recently become very passionate about big cats and their future on this planet. My passion however is limited mostly to just learning about them and teaching my children about them. My question is, for a guy like me, what if anything can I do to help out and make a difference in the efforts to save incredible species like Tigers, Cheetahs, Leopards, etc.? I'm not in a place in life where I can just pick up and move to Kenya to volunteer or anything like that. But I do want to help and I think there are more people out there like me who could make a difference if we knew how.

Again, thank you for doing this.

Thank you for your response. I think you're right - education about conservation is the key to protecting what we have. I know you have worked a lot with the Snow Leopards - do you feel like we have done enough to save such a beautiful animal? Also, in species that are facing certain extinction, are we as a human race taking measures to preserve their DNA in the eventuality that cloning techniques become viable? Is this the right thing to do?

In your expert opinion, how valid/overblown are the media reports of voting laws being passed by certain states being passed to suppress minority votes?
