In India, snow leopards are found in the northern Himalayan Mountain range. The Snow Leopard Trust first began working in India in 1998. We partner with the Nature Conservation Foundation (NCF) to support 2 part-time and 8 full-time staff positions to grow snow leopard conservation efforts in the country.
