"The high altitudes are a special world. Born in the Pleistocene, at home among pulsating glaciers and wind flayed rocks, the animals have survived and thrived, the harshness of the environment breeding a strength and resilience which lowland animals often lack. At these heights, in this remote universe of stone and sky, the fauna and flora of the Pleistocene have endured while many of the species of lower realms have vanished in the uproar of the elements. Just as we become aware of this hidden splendor of the past, we are in danger of denying it to the future. As we reach for the stars we neglect the flowers at our feet. But the great age of mammels in the Himalaya need not to be over unless we permit it to be. For epochs to come the peaks will still pearce the lonely vistas, but when the last Snowleopard has stalked among the crags and the last Markhor has stood on a promontory, his ruff waving in the breeze, a spark of life will have gone, turning the mountains into stones of silence."

Stones of Silence, George B. Schaller
