Our thoughts are with the people of Nepal at this sad time of the devastating earthquake.
So much destruction in both the capital Kathmandu and in the outer regions and villages mean suffering and loss will continue for the whole country for a long time.
Stories of loss of life and destruction of property are also emerging from the areas of snow leopard habitat like Jomsom in Lower Mustang.
Our friend and colleague Dr Som Ale from the Snow Leopard Conservancy reports that some schools which take part in the Snow Leopard Scouts Program have been destroyed and “the livelihood will continue being impacted because stored grains, cereals, crops are destroyed and livestock killed. ”
To our dear readers and supporters of “Saving Snow Leopards” blog, we encourage those who are able to make donations for the recovery of this nation. Every small donation helps and donating over a period of time, even months is important where destruction and loss of life is so extensive.
A heartfelt Thank-you to you all.
