Animals in Afghanistan Survive Conflict

August 1, 2011

TIME reports on WCS's ongoing work in Afghanistan that has helped protect endangered snow leopards and other wildlife in the conflict-plagued eastern province of Nuristan.

A recent study by WCS researchers in Afghanistan revealed that snow leopards, Asiatic black bears, gray wolves, and other wildlife species have survived in parts of Afghanistan. Despite ongoing violent conflict in the country, WCS conservationists continue to work with local communities to protect the nation's natural heritage.

TIME.com recently visited WCS’s Bronx Zoo to speak with Asia Program Director Joe Walston on our work in Afghanistan, and produced this video report.
