I am awfully shocked to know the accident! I experienced the pleasant opportunities of working with Mingma Sherpa, Chandra Gurung and Jennifer Headley for the nature conservation of Asia Pacific and it is a grief beyond any expression. But I believe their souls rest in peace in Sukhavati owing to their devotion to Nature.

"My heart sank at the news from WWF about the deaths of so many prominent dignitaries dedicated to the care of Nepal's grandiose yet fragile environment. This tragic loss will be deeply felt among the small but global fraternity that have pledged their lives to save our planet from ourselves; an undertaking that knows no divide and is blind to ethic, cultural and spiritual origin."

"With 21st century mankind on the cusp of pushing our Earth beyond a critical tipping point into unimaginable horror, there is no nobler cause. These friends of the Earth will therefore be sorely missed, with the pain of that loss eclipsed only by the bereavement of close family and friends. No words can comfort suddent tragic loss of loved ones. We can however honour their memories by continuing the work they left to meet their God."
Quentin Morgan, UK

"
You are all in our thoughts after the tragic accident which took the lives of fellow colleagues working in the field of conservation. In Madagascar, we always refer to those committed to conservation as part of the “environment family”. We know the incredible force of partners to come together for the sustainable environmental management of a country’s unique natural resources. We know the sense of celebration when communities take on management of their own resources. We all work hand in hand - and we can only imagine the loss of so many 'champions' for the cause of conservation in Nepal and globally.

We would like to extend our deepest and sincere condolences to the Government of Nepal, the entire WWF family, and the technical partners (USAID and the Finnish government) who work closely with you in Nepal who also loss lives in this tragic accident. Our hearts also go out to their families and loved ones at this time of profound loss. We will all work harder to honor their sacrifice and accomplishments - and continue our own commitment to conservation in their memory."
Madagascar “Environment Family”
