How can you help?
Your donation will help fund community conservation projects, anti-poaching efforts and the technology we need to monitor and protect snow leopards and their fragile habitats.
Your donation today is crucial to helping WWF:
Stop retaliatory killings
We know that the snow leopard insurance scheme works. So too do initiatives such as building leopard-proof enclosures for livestock, and helping communities develop sustainable livelihoods such as ecotourism. But WWF urgently needs your help to bring these projects to more of the places where people and snow leopards are coming into conflict.
With your help, WWF can train and equip more community anti-poaching patrols. What you give today could go towards the salary for a brave community ranger, or the gear they need to catch poachers at high altitude. With the illegal trade in snow leopard parts on the rise, it’s vital that we ramp up our efforts to shut it down.
Monitor snow leopards
Supporters like you have helped to fund sensor cameras and satellite collars, to track snow leopard movements. This technology has provided some great early data on their journeys between China, India and Nepal. But we desperately need more equipment and data to understand all the snow leopards’ vast landscapes – and where they are most threatened by human development and climate change.
With your support to save the 'Ghost of the Mountains', you will also help secure a safer future for all the species and communities that depend on its extraordinary home.
