A New Snow Leopard Range Map
When biologists go into the field and try to figure out where to find snow leopards, here is what they are up against: There are anywhere from 3,500-7,000 snow leopards left in the world, and their habitat is spread across 12 countries. Maps of snow leopard range are based on habitat models and limited data, much of which is anecdotal.
The good news is, this March, 30 of the world’s leading snow leopard experts came together in Beijing to map their collective knowledge (Beijing Conference press release). Now, a new snow leopard range map is being put together and will soon be available on the Snow Leopard Trust’s website, as well as the Snow Leopard Network website.
