Electrical discharges sparked by the heat of ash plumes light the night sky above Chaiten volcano in the Patagonia region of Chile. The volcano began erupting in early May, for the first time in 9,400 years. Ash billowing from the crater was visible from some 200 kilometers away, and even caused disruption in neighboring Argentina. Thousands of people were evacuated from the surrounding area, with relatively few casualties.

智利首都南方Patagonia區的沙伊頓火山,因火山灰的熱度使電流產生火光,照亮了火山口上方的夜空。這座火山在休眠9400年後於五月恢復活動。就算在兩百多公里遠處都可見噴出的火山灰,它們甚至隨風飄到鄰國阿根廷。數以千計的人全面撤離出這個地區,因此傷亡不多。

Snow leopards are among the most elusive creatures on earth. Secretive, solitary and well-camouflaged among the snow-covered rocks of their mountainous habitats, the cats hunt mainly at night, or at dusk and dawn. Snow leopards in the Indian Himalayan area of Ladakh were photographed using remotely operated camera traps. One of the cameras recorded just a single image in five months. The worldwide population of snow leopards is estimated at between 3,500 and 7,000. Threats to their survival include the popularity of pelts, use of body parts in traditional medicine, and revenge killings by farmers already struggling in a hostile environment, plunged further into poverty when an animal kills valuable livestock. A scheme whereby trekkers stay with villagers who have agreed to protect local wildlife, and pay around €10 a night for food and board, offers a financial incentive to conservation. The income generated is more than enough to replace lost stock.

雪豹是地球上最難以捉摸的生物之一,善於躲藏,獨居,且毛色能在他們棲息的高山覆雪岩地上得到絕佳的保護偽裝。雪豹的狩獵時間主要在夜晚,或是光線昏暗的黃昏和黎明。在印度喜馬拉雅地區的拉達克,攝影師用隱藏式遠程遙控相機捕捉雪豹的蹤影。有一架相機在五個月內只成功拍下了一張照片。據估計,全球的雪豹數量約在三千五百至七千隻。威脅到牠們生存的原因包括牠們身上那大受歡迎的毛皮,以及某些身體部位被作為傳統藥材。除此之外,獵食家畜的雪豹,讓努力在困苦環境中謀生的山村農夫生存更為不易,也因此時常遭到報復獵殺。有一個雪豹的保育計劃是以登山者為訴求,登山者可以投宿在同意保護當地野生動物的村民家中,每晚支付十歐元作為食宿費用,而以此彌補村民損失的牲畜是綽綽有餘的。
