I hope they find a way to keep the population of snow leopards, white tigers, white lions alive somehow, those are real angels lol, anyways keep up the good work SAM, you just earned yourself a subscriber, i like it the article, it dives deep into their history, talks about their population. i have one feedback though, you should have written like a list of questions like a list of questions on how we can save these populations and why saving them is important

Great reporting. I really worry about animal populations being at risk of being driven to extinction by east Asian beliefs in unproven health benefits from consuming various meats and horns, of wild animals. One of the unsavory aspects of the Anthropocene. Trust in folk remedies is very hard to eradicate, even in the 21st century

Thanks for your feedback. I also really worry about this, it's a powerful driver of the illegal wildlife trade. However, upticks in tiger and black rhino numbers recently show that well-funded, well-organized conservation can work, even in highly targeted species!
