SIDDHARTH ANAND – The Contradictory Traveller

His first real encounter with mountains and nature happened when he was 15 and enrolled in a mountaineering course held in Manali (Himalayas), receiving an A++ was a motivation.

When he got a chance to come to New Zealand it was exhilarating. He started to capture more and moved to Queenstown as it’s the World adventure sports capital and did his paragliding license and to better soak in the Southern Alps.

Lion-tailed macaque, a critically endangered species endemic to Southern India and found nowhere else in the world. One of the rarest and most threatened primates. These macaques are typically arboreal and rarely comes to the ground as they prefer to live in the high canopy tropical rainforest, but this female rare visit to the ground was turned to be a death trap where a domestic village dog hunt her down which is a very opportunistic event. Losing an individual of such a majestic and ecological sensitive species is a big loss and affects its conservation.
