A Wonderful Gift

Give a gift that will help protect the future of snow leopards and their habitats.

Snow Leopard Map

Snow leopards prefer steep terrain, broken by cliffs, rocky outcrops and ravines. They live at high altitudes, usually at elevations of 3,000–4,500m, although they occasionally go above 5,500m in the Himalayas.

Threats

Snow leopard livestock stat

Human snow leopard conflict

There’s around 10 times more livestock than wild prey in some snow leopard range areas. Some livestock owners kill snow leopards to protect their livestock.

Snow Leopard

Loss of prey and habitat

Over-grazing by domestic livestock is damaging to mountain grasslands and leading to a decline in the snow leopard's natural prey.

Poaching

It's estimated that up to 450 snow leopards are killed each year - mainly in retaliation from preying on livestock, but also for the illegal trade or accidentally by snares.

Climate Change

The high Himalayas are warming at three times the global average, affecting snow leopard habitat.

How we can help

We’re working with governments, local communities and TRAFFIC (the wildlife trade monitoring network) to prevent the killing and illegal trade in snow leopards and their body parts, and reducing conflict between snow leopards and local people who depend on livestock for their livelihoods.

The snow leopard’s habitat also provides important resources for the many people who live there – from food and medicine to wood for shelter, heat and fuel. By helping to protect the snow leopard, we’re helping to conserve its environment for the benefit of people and nature.

Your adoption and support will help us:

  • train and equip community anti-poaching patrols
  • promote sustainable use of natural resources in the region, including improved management of pastureland
  • work with local communities to monitor snow leopards and their prey
  • support community-run livestock insurance schemes to help local herders to protect their livelihoods, and other measures to reduce human - snow leopard conflict

Snow Leopards can't roar
