"Rrrrrr, Badgers!" Tashi Zangpo says, cradling the remains of a bird nest in his hands on a mountain slope nearly 14,000 feet above sea level. For weeks, Tashi, a Tibetan Buddhist monk and self-taught conservation biologist, has scoured these mountains.

Buddhists monks do help save animals in many parts of World. Even in Ladakh region of India, Buddhists living there saves different fishes by removing them from drying areas and putting them in place where there is enough water. It is good that this monk is working hard to save rare Tibetan bird. Not only that, he is also spreading awareness amongst Tibetan people for protecting these rare birds. There are many thousands of Buddhist monks and if all started working for animal rights considering it as one of the principle of Buddhism, then certainly it will be a huge contribution in protection of animals and environment. Thanks a lot Simone!!

kick China out of Tibet and keep the buntings. These natives can keep Tibet going indefinitely; the Chinese just want to rob them. China should only be allowed to return when the imperialist Communists are eliminated and their successors agree to treat Tibet (and other neighbour nations) with respect.

Thank you so much for this story! It meant a lot to me and I really appreciated it! I love the typo, too, because I am "Buddish", as Buddhism is very logical to me. So now if I am asked about my religious beliefs, I can say "Buddish".
