WWF International  Building a future in which people live in harmony with nature. #togetherpossible #connect2earth 🐼

#DYK that the snow #leopard plays a vital role as both the top #predator and as an indicator of the health of their high altitude #habitat? When #snow #leopards thrive, countless other #species will too.

We are very excited to welcome our newest member of the #WWFVoices community @joshuapowell_official! Josh is a Conservation Biologist and National Geographic Explorer. As a scientist, he's interested in how human society interacts with the natural world - and what impact that has for biodiversity. Some of the questions he's interested in include human-wildlife conflict and how to reduce it, social conservation strategies and how can we make conservation beneficial for human communities, and how trans-boundary conservation systems can work. His most recent expedition, 'Rangers Without Borders - Eurasia' with National Geographic, is in partnership with some of WWF's own researchers.

Always keen to share experiences from the field and the importance of conserving the world's remaining biodiversity, Josh joins our growing #WWFVoices community. Follow #WWFVoices for more.
