A Crucial Partnership Gets Stronger

On May 29, 2014, the State Agency on Environment Protection and Forestry (SAEPF) of Kyrgyz Republic, along with the Snow Leopard Trust and Snow Leopard Foundation in Kyrgyzstan signed a Memorandum of Understanding on cooperation in the area of wildlife conservation, valid for 10 years.

“This MoU is a significant milestone as it will strengthen our relationship with the SAEPF and other state organizations and help us to reach our conservation goals”, says Charu Mishra, the Snow Leopard Trust’s Science and Conservation Director. “For instance, the strong partnership will help us launch our new pilot ‘Citizen Ranger Rewards Program’ aimed at helping park rangers and community members work together to end illegal poaching in key snow leopard areas.”

  1. These are such beautiful amazing creatures, I am just in love with all the big cats. I hate hearing about their demise especially with China. They are such a cruel and destructive country, they really need to be educated on the harm that they are causing. All of the big cats require protection from them as well as the poachers that assist them.
