Hello everyone I am happy to be back with another show about the Land of the Snow Leopard Network. I interviewed Darla Hillard of the Snow Leopard Conservancy and Maria Azhunova, the newly elected leader of the Land of the Snow Leopard Network. Last year I interviewed the founder of the Snow Leopard Conservancy, Dr. Rodney Jackson where he explained what is happening in conservation of these cats. Today’s topic is more about the people coming together to not only protect these cats but protect their traditions. The Land of the Snow Leopard Network spans across 12 countries in Asia: China (where at least half of all wild snow leopards are believed to exist), Bhutan, Nepal, India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Russia, Kyrgyz Republic, Tajikistan, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan and Mongolia. As you can imagine this area is diverse in tradition, culture and political views. The Land of the Snow Leopard Network shares the voices of local stewards working in the same areas where snow leopards reside. In these indigenous communities the snow leopard is a symbol of endurance and indicator of the health of the high mountain ecosystems. Protectors and stewards of the land in each country are coming forward, reviving spiritual and cultural practices while educating their communities about the importance of saving the snow leopard. So I hope you enjoy this episode as Darla and Maria share their stories and the work they are doing. Photo Credit: Nicolas Villaume

Lisa Owens-Viani: Co-Founder of Raptors are the Solution (RATS)

Hello everyone welcome back to BeProvided Conservation Radio, this is your host, Marcia Sivek. In today’s episode I speak via telephone with Lisa Owens Viani, cofounder of Raptors are the Solution or in short RATS. We discuss the topic of rodenticides or rat poison that seems to me, to be the DDT of our times and it is very important to learn more about this topic because our wildlife is being greatly affected, such as raptors (owls, hawks, eagles) and animals such as bobcats, mountain lions and even our own beloved pet cats and dogs. Research has even shown that rodenticides are finding their way into slugs, snakes and even sea otters. This is a heavy subject because it seems like such a big feat to take on but Lisa has done so and started a movement. This is what keeps her going. Also in todays episode we will discuss an important assembly bill AB 1788 created by assemblyman Richard Bloom from Santa Monica. Just after this episode was completed, Lisa contacted me that there will ...

“I have a wonderful dream where everyone values the preservation of nature and we are inspired to protect it.” ~Meera Sulaiman-Photographer, Artist, Lover of Wildlife I had such a great time speaking with this week’s guest, Meera Sulaiman. It was like speaking to a long time friend, we have so much in common. Our conversation went on for well over an hour where we talked about our passions, Meera’s many projects and life. Because I wanted this episode to focus on the conservation of Trumpeter Swans, I edited out a piece of the conversation to include as a bonus track. Bonus track and interview audio can be found at www.beprovided.com/blog In this bonus track Meera talks about a current threat to Double-Crested Cormorants; they also need our help right now! This is worth listening to to learn more about these birds. If they are all killed off, the ecosystem of other water birds they form colonies with are negatively affected. Another reason why we should not mess with Mother Natu...
