Twenty-four Conservationists Lost in Tragic Helicopter Accident

We at the Snow Leopard Network offer our sincerest condolences as we mourn the loss of 24 conservationists who lost their lives in a helicopter accident in Nepal on 23 September, 2006. Each of the victims offered outstanding contributions to the field of snow leopard conservation, and they will undoubtedly inspire us to further their efforts for decades to come. On a personal level, this is a shocking and grievous loss to those who had the privilege of knowing and working with them. On a professional level, this is a terrible loss for snow leopard conservation, as most of Nepal’s top conservationists were aboard. They will be missed, and let us honor their legacy by always continuing to work toward implementing greater conservation efforts in Nepal and elsewhere.
