Lobende Erwähnung 2014

The snow leopard is a shy animal. In his homeland, the Tibetan High Plateaus, it avoids contact with humans. Nevertheless, it is more and more threatened and its habitat is steadily vanishing. The local shepherds hunt it, because the leopard eats the blue sheep Bharal, which can hardly be found anymore in wildlife. Two Buddhist monks want to help this endangered animal. One solution might be the return to Buddhism, which has been oppressed for a long time, and is now enhanced by people who dwell in the living space of the snow leopard.
