Summer Success in India — Thank you!

We asked and you responded!

Throughout the spring, we asked you to help fund important projects in India. We are thrilled to report that over 426 people made donations or adoptions –sending over $35,000 for projects this summer!

This means that the team in India can move forward with their ambitious plans to send over 300 kids to nature camp, build stronger corrals for over 30 families, and conduct vital research on the snow leopards.

Thank you to everyone who made this possible!
