Poachers Identified Thanks to Camera Trap

Our Kyrgyz partner community of Enilchek lost a conservation bonus they would have been due for 2015 because a young man from the village was seen on a camera trap photo guiding poachers into nearby the locally protected area. Now, the young man’s family has agreed to compensate their fellow community members for the lost bonus payment – and our team has started installing camera traps to catch more poachers in the act.

Climbing Mountains to Help a Mountain Cat

More than 800 ski touring athletes gathered in five locations in Europe this weekend for “Snow Leopard Day”, a fundraising event to benefit snow leopards organized by our long-standing partner, ski touring gear maker Dynafit. Together, they raised more than $10,000 for the mountain cat by climbing some mountains themselves. Our Communications Manager joined in on the fun!
