Listen here. Now on Spotify! In episode 57 of America Adapts, Doug Parsons talks with experts from all over the world focusing on the conservation of the elusive snow leopard of the Asia High Mountains and how this species - and the communities around this species - are adapting to climate change. Guests from Nepal, India, China, Russia, Sweden, and the US share stories on studying this amazing cat and talk about some of the innovative adaptation strategies that are being put in place thanks to funding from a USAID project that is being implemented by World Wildlife Fund.
Two additional themes emerge in this episode, the influence of Peter Matthiessen’s epic masterpiece, The Snow Leopard, and stories from these experts about their own magical encounters with the snow leopard in the wild. Peter Matthiessen never did see a snow leopard, but several of these experts did. Hear their amazing stories in detail. This podcast was sponsored by World Wildlife Fund and USAID as part of the Asia’s High Mountains project. Brochure: Conservation and Adaptation in Asia’s High Mountain Landscapes and Communities
