With the growing population of humans they take a big part of the natural habitat of the animals. Predators like our cats have an decreasiing place to live in and there are less and less natural prey animals who also disappear with the decreasing nature surrounding them. Often predators are moving outside the protected areas and enter the human world. They kill the livestock of the local people and are often killed by doing so. It’s an increasing conservation issue and it’s something that has to be dealt with on short terms or it will be too late.
My friend Amit Mitra from Bangalore, India, has established Conservancyfilm, a non-profit group of 4 IT Professionals, who driven by love and concern for wildlife strive to make conservation awareness films in effort to safeguard the fast disappearing natural reserves.
Look at his interesting documentary on the snowleopard. WCM hopes to go and try to see the Snowleopard in the wild in the near future too. This will be a big challenge though as they live in a habitat that’s not easy to reach with freezing temperatures to go along with this.
