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 High Asia 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.

1 thought on “Conservation and Adaptation in Asia’s High Mountain Landscapes – The Snow Leopard”

Josh Gross · January 15, 2018 at 6:19 pm

Hello Doug,

This is an excellent podcast. I’m increasingly seeing climate change being mentioned in discussions about snow leopard conservation, due to the ways High Asia might change in coming years. This podcast gave me a much better idea of how climate change might impact both snow leopards and local people, and how the fate of the former is tied to the wellbeing of the latter.

In fact, I’ve posted a short blurb about this podcast on my blog. It’s nothing major, because I didn’t want to give away too many spoilers. But hopefully it’ll direct a little more traffic to your podcast. If you’d like to read the blurb, here’s the link:

Thanks for putting this podcast together!
