Antes de recibir al grupo de fotógrafos a los que guiaría por la impresionante región de Ladakh, dediqué unos días a explorar algunos espacios naturales del estado de #Uttarakhand .

The second post on Barbary Lions is just a continuation of the rant, really. Barbary Lions, the largest lions, are now extinct, as they have been for more than 50 years. Other subspecies aren't faring any better, with the number of lions decreasing annually, and even though we understand that lions are important, and that lions need conservation and protection, there are open killing sprees in Africa for fun/poaching. So fun, isn't it? There are even reports of countries using game hunting as ways to generate revenue. Well, if that's a sport, then I would like to hunt poachers and murderers, nothing would make me happier than ridding the world of such humans. We're supposed to be the "intelligent" species of the planet, so much for intelligence, really. Our information driven lives can't focus on the fact of protecting Earth, our home and all the species on it. No, our lives focus on stupid shit and celebrity gossip. It can be even seen in politicians and leaders. What percentage of the world's leaders can explain global warming and climate change? And whatever is the percentage, it won't be 100 or even 90, and the question is why isn't it 100?
