Wait…sorry, we were thinking of the WWE…HA!

The World Wildlife Fund has partnered with Yanni to help giant panda conservation. The composer and singer has had a HUGE honor bestowed upon him as he has "adopted" a panda from Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding.

The partnership has set up a limited edition $50 panda adoption fund, where contributors can symbolically adopt pandas.

Yanni has guaranteed $50,000 from his end, which would equal 1,000 mini adoptions.

At the Bouba N'Djida reserve in Cameroon about half of the elephants were recently killed by poachers.

Absolutely terrible!

More Tigers Live As Americans' Pets Than In The Wild

tiger-in-america-not-wild.jpg

This is a sad but true fact: There are more tigers living as pets in America than there are tigers living in the wild in the rest of the ENTIRE WORLD!

That is just plain wrong.

Estimates claim about 5,000 tigers are living in backyards, urban apartments (what??), sideshows, truck stops and private breeding facilities.

The World Wildlife Foundation has been trying to bring this matter to light for a while now.

Finally Congressman Howard “Buck” McKeon (R-CA) and Rep. Loretta Sanchez (D-CA) have stepped up and

Khloe Kardashian Saves Tigers With A Single Tweet

khloe-kardashian-save-tiger.jpg

Khloe Kardashian helped the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) raise thousands of dollar to help save endangered tigers all by simply tweeting:

"By texting TIGERS to 20222, your $10 donation will help WWF save the tiger in its vast range – from India to China, to the Russian Far East."

We're sure it helped that she has 5.6 million followers and that it's a great cause.

Apparently after the tweet, over 600 people texted and the WWF raised over $6,000… and that was just in two days!

The money is going to scientific research in the wild on how to better protect tigers, seeing as how there are less than 3,500 left alive in the wild.

That's why Khloe didn't stop after the tweet. She adopted a tiger online!

Then convinced her mama to do the same.

Way to go, Khloe!

The Alec Baldwin airplane saga continues!

To recap…..yesterday, we learned that Alec was kicked off of an American Airlines flight for playing Words with Friends on the plane after being asked to turn off his cell phone.

Then, in honor of Alec's WWF fiasco, tech company Zynga (who created Words with Friends), posted a clever message to Mr. Baldwin, which creatively says "Let Alec Play!" Ha!

THEN, Alec
