ENDANGERED SNOW MORE

We speak to Peter Zahler, Wildlife Conservation Society, about the IUCN’s decision to take snow leopards off the Endangered Red List

Snow Leopards have to be one of the most enigmatic animals to grace our planet, yet we still know so little about them compared to their African counterparts. Part of this is due to their habitats; scaling rugged, vertical rock faces high in the Himalayas isn’t easy, especially with a hefty camera and recording equipment. It’s not surprising that snow leopards are rarely caught on film and, as such, wildlife enthusiasts have an understandable fascination with these mysterious cats.

It was announced earlier this year that the IUCN have removed snow leopards from their list of Endangered species, but are they still in danger? We spoke to Peter Zahler, Senior Advisor for Asia and Snow Leopard Program Coordinator for the Wildlife Conservation Society about what this really means for snow leopards.

Peter has been working in the mountains of Asia since he first went to northern Pakistan in 1992 to perform research on wildlife there. Having seen wildlife being heavily overhunted due to the rapid increase in modern weaponry in the region, forests being cut down and poor resource management, Peter realised that there was a wildlife crisis in the area.

About Vegan Life

It’s the most wonderful time of the year which means dark nights and crisp cold days, rich cinnamon-infused foods and, in my house, Miracle on 34th Street on repeat. I turn into that annoying person that most people hate at Christmas. I start listening to carols in early November, wearing ridiculous jumpers and get myself into a state of overexcitement for the entirety of December leading to near exhaustion by Christmas Eve. Combining my passions for Christmas and veganism for the December issue of Vegan Life, therefore, has been immensely satisfying for me and it should be just as satisfying for you because we have a bumper issue! This month we have made Vegan Life even bigger (and better) with 122 pages full of your favourite regulars as well as interviews, news and the best vegan recipes around. These extra pages give you the perfect excuse to curl up in a chair just a little longer and have some you-time to read and escape the ever-so-slightly-manic Christmas hysteria. In a whistle stop tour of the magazine we have; an interview with Ingrid Kirkman, founder of PETA; Fat Gay Vegan on shopping at independents; an article on the importance of iodine in our diets and an excellent travel section focusing on the vegan scene in Brazil. Finally, I want to share some very exciting news from Vegan Life HQ. As some of you may know we were nominated for the Best Vegan Magazine by the VegFest UK Awards and… we won! I want to say thank you to everyone who voted for Vegan Life and to those who read the magazine. We count ourselves incredibly lucky to have such a loyal readership who are so supportive of what we do. Vegan Life was founded, and is still run, by a team of vegans passionate about making a change in the world. We are seeing the start of that change and we will be with you every step of the way into the future. For now, enjoy the festive period and we will see you in the new year.
