Join David as he takes you on a trip to the high altitudes and Tibetan Buddhist region of Ladahk in northern India including the high salt lake of Pangong Tso on the Tibetan border, home of the wild Tibetan Ass. He will also take you on a trek along the Markha River in the Hemis High Altitude National Park where blue sheep or Bharal forage along the dry desert slopes, where Himalayan Marmots and Pikas whistle warnings and people live a life not much changed over the last thousand years. Finally a visit to Jim Corbett National Park and Tiger Reserve along the southern foothills of the Himalaya where herds of wild Asian Elephants still wander and tigers hunt Chital Deer.

Action Alert: Castle Parks Public Consultation

Oct 5 2015 (All day)

From the AWA website:

Two new parks were declared in the Castle on September 4, 2015. It has been about 50 years in the making and it was an announcement we all received with praise for the government’s decision and intent to protect this valuable wilderness. We shared excitement with many colleagues and individuals who have hoped for this designation. Since the announcement we have begun anticipating what the new parks would mean to future generations and ecosystem integrity. We are writing today to invite you to participate by completing a simple online consultation survey the government launched the same day as the announcement and to include written comments about the values you have for these two new parks.

 

Please email a copy of your comments snichols [at] abwild [dot] ca (to me); I look forward to hearing from you,

- Sean Nichols, AWA Conservation Specialist
