Tibet Nature 1 
Tibetan Eco-Website project

To support Lha’s objective of preserving the Tibetan culture and environment, funds are currently needed for the smooth running, development and management of our Tibet Nature website (in Tibetan and English version). The Tibet Nature website provides deep knowledge on current environmental issues which includes translation, update, research and production of related documents to create awareness across the globe.

Destruction of the Tibetan environment has global implications. The Tibetan plateau is the world's third pole, with its vast ice fields giving rise to waterways that influence the lives of about 85% of Asia's population, or 47% of the world population downstream. The Tibetan Plateau is the principal watershed of Asia and as many as 10 major rivers originate here.

This fragile ecology is now under threat due to excessive exploitation of natural resources (particularly logging of the virgin forests, extensive mining, damming of rivers, dumping of nuclear waste and population increases due to Chinese policy of resettling Chinese people in Tibet). One forecast warns that 80 percent of the glacial area in Tibet could disappear by 2035.

Tibetan culture has always strongly upheld traditional values of reverence towards the environment, which is based on the Buddhist concept of interdependence. This website, (which would be the first of its kind written in Tibetan), will help keep this culture alive.

The site will also disseminate important and valuable information to the Tibetan and Himalayan population both locally and around the world, on the global movement for the protection of bio-diversity (including current state of global environment and endangered species, international laws on environment protection, etc.) please visit Tibet Nature website: www.tibetnature.net
