Adopt a snow leopard
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%.
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.
Your adoption will help WWF to work with governments and local communities to prevent the illegal trade in snow leopards and their body parts, reduce conflict with local people and protect snow leopard habitats.
It's the perfect gift
with a cuddly toy leopard and special adoption gift pack including adoption certificate and stunning snow leopard portrait.
You can choose for this gift pack to be sent directly to the recipient or you can receive it to give to them yourself.
Adopt a snow leopard today and know that you’re helping to give these beautiful and endangered big cats a brighter future.
Your gift of adoption could help WWF:
- Train and equip anti-poaching patrols.
- Work with local communities to monitor snow leopard movement and reduce human-snow leopard conflict.
- Promote sustainable use of natural resources in the region.
- Support compensation schemes for local farmers who have lost livestock to snow leopards.
- Fund our other essential work in Australia and around the world.
All donations of $2 or more to WWF-Australia are tax deductible. For your convenience we will send you one receipt at the end of the financial year, for the total amount of your tax deductible donations. If your adoption includes a plush toy, the $15 cost for the toy is not tax deductible.
