Today, around 3,900 tigers remain in the wild – and poaching is one of their biggest threats. Every part of the tiger, from whiskers to tail, as well as live tiger cubs are traded illegally – which is why we ban the trade of all tigers and tiger products.

Volunteering has always played an important role in Paul Son’s life. In college, Paul volunteered as a tutor and science fair mentor at a school near the University of Washington. In 2011, Paul first experienced disaster response when he was deployed to Batrop, TX, where a fire had scorched 40,000 acres and destroyed over 1,000 homes. Together, these experiences inspired Paul to spend his sabbatical doing what he does best — give back to the community.
