Conservation Around the World
In parts of the snow leopard range, wildlife sometimes causes damage to local farmer’s standing crops before they can be harvested. In a pilot project, our team in India has deployed local guards in five villages to chase wildlife away and protect the crops. In four villages, this approach has reduced damages.
In just 2 weeks, Snow Leopard Trust supporters have raised $11,830 for our partner communities in Pakistan that were devastated by recent floods! The money will be used to restore drinking water supplies in several villages in Chitral and Gilgit Baltistan and to repair damaged homes.
