Information on the Snow Leopard Conservancy: A California registered 501 (c) (3) nonprofit, SLC is one of only two organizations in the USA solely devoted to conservation of the rare snow leopard. Found in the high mountains of twelve Central, South, and East Asian countries, snow leopards are threatened with extinction. SLC cooperates with local (in-country) non-profit organizations, governments and individuals in seven countries (Bhutan, Nepal, Pakistan, Mongolia, Russia, Kyrgyzstan, and Tajikistan), providing small-grants for implementing conservation, education, and research projects targeting key threats affecting survival of this top-predator. SLC’s vision centers on promoting community-based land and species stewardship, seeking solutions that blend traditional knowledge with western scientific approaches. We work closely with indigenous people as well as national and international scientists to ensure snow leopards are valued alive, rather than dead, by local communities.
SLC has a solid, trend-setting record for new innovative conservation techniques, for fostering compassionate human-sensitive approaches to conservation that grow from grass-roots collaboration with livestock herders and remote, rural communities located in snow leopard habitat.
SLC’s long-term goal centers on building the capacity of local organizations and talented individuals in select range countries, so they are able to move forward as independent, effective forces for conserving snow leopards and other biodiversity of mountain habitats.
