They are powerful, captivating and incredibly vulnerable to poaching and loss of prey and habitat.

 

The elegant snow leopard is one of the world’s most elusive cats. Sparsely distributed across 12 countries in central Asia, it’s usually found in high, rugged mountain landscapes. But since the 1990’s, snow leopard numbers have declined by at least 20%.

 

Your donation will be used to:

Poaching, damage to their habitat and conflict with people are all threats that snow leopards face. As human settlements grow and wild prey declines, snow leopards are taking livestock, causing farmers to retaliate by killing snow leopards to protect their livelihoods.
