  1. Merci de partager ces superbes photos pleines de vie et d’espoir.

    Thank you for sharing these wonderful pictures full of life and hope.

    1. This photography is so beautiful of these gorgeous cats! Snow Leopards are my favorite big cats!! I Love them all very much, But, I just love those gorgeous Snow Leopards!

  2. The snow leopard is so beautiful no wonder it is hunted to that extent. The hunters should be heavily sentenced.

  3. Thanks you, Snow Leopard Trust for being the only organisation around that REALLY takes care of Snow Leopards. They are so beautiful, majestic, and mysterious, I don’t see how ANYONE could not fall in love with them. I completely agree with Muriel Servaege and also believe hunters should be sentenced. After all, they are ENDANGERED.
    Thank You!!!!

  4. I echo Krys – thank you for the pictures of live and hope! Seeing these inspires me and brings happiness. Thank you for all you do!

  5. Thank you SLT for all of the amazing work you do to protect these magnificent animals. It is truly unfathomable that one snow leopard is killed each day! How can anyone take the life of even a single one of these incredible cats? A future without these animals (and without wild elephants, tigers and a host of other creatures) is simply too bleak to contemplate. When will the human race learn to share our planet with other living beings and understand that these animals have just as much right as humans to survive?

  6. Thank you for all of your tremendous work to help raise awareness, build support and ultimately keep these remarkable cats safe now and thriving in the future.
