Aasha (means Hope) is a rescued tiger cub who now lives at In-Sync Exotics Wildlife Rescue and Educational Center in Wylie, TX, where my husband and I volunteer. She was almost completely bald with ringworm when she first arrived due to neglect. Getting to know her has given me hope and an urgency to do everything I can to help protect tigers both in the wild and in captivity. I see hope in her eyes as well.
