As part of our ‘Talking Naturally Partners Project’ – through which we aim to inspire and promote conservation by hosting news/appeals/interviews/podcasts etc with our ‘partnering’ conservation organisations – we are posting this news from the Foundation for the Protection of the Arabian Leopard in Yemen (FPALY)
Dear Friends of the Arabian Leopard,
FPALY/FEW Update number 30 is now ready for download at: http://www.yemenileopard.org/
This is an especially important issue as it chronicles two very major setbacks in the conservation of the Arabian Leopard in Yemen.
We also follow the fate of the four Cheetah cubs rescued by Guenther Wirth and Janice Bowdery in Boroma, Somaliland. Sadly, although these four cubs are now safe, as I was posting the newsletter I received an email from Guenther informing me that three more Cheetah cubs have just been confiscated in Hargesia as the relentless assault on wildlife continues.
Wildlife trafficking is a huge global problem in which Yemen has a significant regional role. We
will continue to battle this shameful practice but we will need your help.
Update number 29 is now available for download in Arabic at: http://www.yemenileopard.org/
Thank you for your continued interest in the conservation of Endangered wildlife in Yemen.
With best wishes,
David B. Stanton
Adviser to the Yemen Minister of Water & Environment
