 DESCRIPTION
spacer

The World Natural Heritage Sites protect over 286 million hectares of land and sea, including trans-boundary sites, signifying that heritage sites belong to all peoples of the world, irrespective of the territory on which they are located.

Wild Treasures is a selection of 45 carefully curated articles, channelling voices past and present to take you on a journey across Asia’s most beautiful landscapes. Wet, evergreen forests of India’s Western Ghats and Sri Lanka; the only mangrove forests, Sundarbans, where tigers roam across India and Bangladesh; the mystical tropical forests of Myanmar where tigers are revered as ‘relatives’ but are equally vulnerable to poaching pressures; the Lut Desert in Iran, the hottest place in the world; the snowy peaks of the Himalayas, the haunt of the elusive grey ghost --the Snow Leopard; Keoladeo, a wetland dense with birds in the dry region of India’s Rajasthan; the rhino's realm across India's Manas, Kaziranga; Chitwan in Nepal, and the sacred mountainscape of Khangchendzonga are just some of the places highlighted in this anthology. The voices are equally varied. The pieces in this collection have been penned by writers, poets, ecologists, scientists, foresters, photographers, conservationists --all bonded by a love for nature and our natural heritage.

We hope that the book will kindle an appreciation for nature, encourage responsible travel and garner support for these imperilled natural wonders.
