About the Snow Leopard Trust Project: The organization works in 5 out of 12 countries where the snow leopard is located: China, India, Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia and Pakistan. In each of these five countries, handcrafted cat toys are made through a local partner organization led by local staff. This way small cats can help big cats - because a large part of the proceeds benefit the shepherd families living in this region. Snowleopard Trust conducts research on snow leopards, supports community conservation programs, and negotiates policy decisions with local authorities to protect these vulnerable cats and to find ways to make snow leopards live with the people who share their habitat. Many of the families living in the snow leopard habitat are shepherds who live on less than $ 2 a day. The snow leopard occasionally attacks animals and kills them. Therefore, members of these low-income communities sometimes resort to acts of retaliation or poaching of the snow leopard to protect their livestock or to earn extra money. The Snow Leopard Trust's community-based nature conservation program aims to break this cycle of poverty and provide incentives for shepherds to protect local wildlife and ecosystems.
With the support of thousands of followers around the world, the Snow Leopard Trust's international research team is examining this endangered cat and its behaviors and needs in five countries. This helps us to determine where to focus our conservation programs to combat these threats and secure the future of snow leopards!
