Description

The Lama of the Crystal Monastery appears to be a very happy man, and yet I wonder how he feels about his isolation in the silences of Tsakang, which he has not left in eight years now and, because of his legs, may never leave again. An epic, once-in-a-lifetime trip, tent camping, hiking several national parks, driving through the west I know and love, sometimes reading the poetry of the region if I remembered to look it up as I went. The team stayed in the remote and dramatic Langu Gorge four seasons and during that time experienced extreme weather including one of the worst winter snow seasons in the region’s living memory, major monsoon rains and the isolation and danger of being at high altitudes in remote areas a two-week hike away from the nearest airstrip. It’s a treasure trove of stories, including contributions from some of SLT’s field staff and snow leopard biologists. New chapters synthesize the novel scientific methods and statistical analyses used to develop density and population estimates and how they inform conservation and management estimates.

Schwartz has extensive experience in international conservation efforts through involvement in IUCN/Species Survival Commission’s Conservation Planning, Conservation Translocation, Tapir, Otter, and Wildlife Health Specialist Groups. It was the first time for me to read a book by Peter Matthiessen and I'm afraid I didn't like it too much. They also say that there is a police check post at Saldang, which makes it inadvisable for us to go there” (p.

We’ll always be grateful to Tom and to Kim, Nadia and Bayara as well as our cook Enke and driver Munko, and to all the great Mongolian herders we met.One day he comes across his fellow villagers wanting to kill a captured snow leopard, which has killed many of the villager’s sheep and goats. In Explore My World Snow Leopards, curious kids ages 3 to 7 will be excited to learn about rare and beautiful snow leopards: their habitat, how they've adapted for a cold climate, and how they care for and teach their cubs. They could comment on how sad Indians looked and how there was poverty and how the environment wasn’t being cared for.

This updated edition incorporates all the recent information from range-wide surveys and conservation projects, the results of technical and advances particularly in genetics, camera trapping and satellite tracking, and evaluates emerging threats. Ideally, a work of travel literature should chronicle a spiritual voyage as well as a physical journey. The Snow Leopard is one of the best and important books I have ever read, and I finally read it not in some hippie solo way or at an Ashram or something, but on a one-month road trip (in a mini-van, no less, ha!After months of physical therapy it had finally healed–but then, the Tuesday before I stepped on the plane to Mongolia, I twisted it in a chipmunk hole by our barn. Through Matthiessen’s experiences we rub shoulders with llamas, sherpas, bearers and the Nepalese people.
