A Facebook follower alerted me to an alarming issue that took place while I was in Colorado. War broke out between the nations of Azerbaijan and Armenia on September 27, which concluded in a cease-fire in mid November. During this time, illegal chemical weapons were used that could lead to much human and ecological suffering.
Two years ago, a follower recommended a film to me called The World’s Most Wanted Leopard. Produced by South Africa’s Ginkgo Agency, it documents photographer Adrian Steirn’s quest to document a rare Caucasian leopard in Azerbaijan: a small country in Southeastern Europe. The World’s Most Wanted Leopard immediately became one of my favorite wildlife films.
