I will be going to Nepal in early December for the #Asia for #Animals conference so there will be comprehensive coverage on Changing Times.
I am still seeking funding assistance to help cover the return air fare from KL to Kathmandu, which has cost me about US$420.
The #AfA conference are a great source of information about what is happening with wildlife in this region. I will be able to update myself on what is being done to combat wildlife trafficking and I'll of course hear about the conservation and protection of this region’s many species.
This year's theme is Changing Human Behaviour. The keynote speakers this year include the founder and president of the #Nonhuman Rights Project in the United States, Steven M. Wise; the eminent historian, #environmentalist, and author Nanditha Krishna; the regional head for the Brooke #India programmes, Faizan Jaleel, who works to educate the owners of working horses, donkeys, and mules and alleviate the animals’ suffering; Chu Tseng-Hung, whose persistent campaigning has improved the lives of millions of animals in his native Taiwan; and Pei F. Su, who has spearheaded numerous campaigns on issues ranging from #bear farming to the illegal #turtle trade.
Another keynote speaker will be Grace Ge Gabriel, who is the International Fund for Animal Welfare's regional director for Asia.
I wrote three reports for Changing Times about the 2015 conference and would do the same this year.
Please spread the word and help to support my work financially if you can.
People can use the Paypal or GoCardless buttons on my website or contact me for other options. Many thanks. Here is one of my articles from the AfA conference in 2015: https://changingtimes.media/2015/10/08/asia-for-animals-conference-the-horrors-of-illegal-wildlife-trading-and-live-exports/

As the #Indian conglomerate #Adani starts work on the rail line from its planned Carmichael mine, which would be the largest #coal mine in Australia, protesters have been locking themselves onto construction machinery, and are vowing to do whatever it takes to peacefully stop the project going ahead.

For those of you who would like to learn more about #gibbons, go along to #Sunway University, #Subang Jaya, #Selangor, tomorrow. There will be an information day about these endangered, yet often overlooked smaller apes, with talks, an exhibition, and games. The event is organised by the Gibbon Protection Society #Malaysia (GPSM). One of the speakers will be the founder of the #GPSM, Mariani Ramli. And it's not to late to donate to help cover the cost of the event :-) https://www.gofundme.com/gpsm2017/
