WHY WE ESTABLISHED THE SNOW LEOPARD CONSERVANCY

  • People have moved their livestock into snow leopard habitat, crowding out the cats’ native prey.  Then, when cats prey on livestock, herders kill them in retaliation.

Snow Leopard Conservancy developed innovative, community-based livestock corral predator-proofing programs.

  • Habitat loss and fragmentation also threaten the snow leopard.

Snow Leopard Conservany and its partners have led the way in radio-tracking, trail camera monitoring, and community-based eco-tourism and livestock insurance programs.

  • Snow Leopards are poached for their bones, skin, and organs which are used in traditional Asian medicine.

Snow Leopard Conservancy and its partners developed Snow Leopard Day festivals and community-based conservation education for herder communities and school children.
