Our partner Dynafit had nominated us for a $15,000 grant for India’s snow leopards from the European Outdoor Conservation Association. In March 2013, a public voting was held to determine which of the nominated projects would be funded. We asked for your support – and did you ever answer the call!

You voted, shared posts, forwarded emails, talked to your family members – and helped score a huge win for snow leopard conservation!

  • 5 projects were nominated
  • 10,180 votes were cast in total
  • Snow leopards received 5533 votes (over 54% of the total!)

Thanks to this immense support from snow leopard friends all over the world, we’ll be able to expand our successful conservation projects in the Indian Himalayas in the coming months!


From all of us at the Snow Leopard Trust, THANK YOU VERY MUCH!
