Staying connected helps lend strength to each other. We invite you to take a glimpse into our team members’ lives to see how they are working during this challenging time.
We hope that you, your family, and friends are safe and holding up okay at this extraordinary time. The pandemic reminds us of the need to care for each other, and for our precious natural world. Please read this message from the Snow Leopard Trust.
We catch up with Snow Leopard Trust Ambassador and Olympic hopeful Lila Lapanja five years after her first interview.
In celebration of World Wildlife Day, 18 rangers were awarded for helping to fight the battle against illegal poaching and hunting in Kyrgyzstan.
A new record set during Dynafit’s 2020 Snow Leopard Day: ski touring enthusiasts raise over $22,000 for snow leopard conservation!
Through our Long-Term Ecological Study (LTES) which began in the Tost region of Mongolia in 2008, we are discovering new insights into the lives of wild snow leopards. Here we share with you the life history of Anu—one of the oldest and most resilient snow leopard mothers we have met in Tost.
Veterinarian, Dr. Carol Esson, has recently completed her PhD at the James Cook University in Australia on possible disease transmission between snow leopards and other wildlife. She shares with us stories from the field and how she found herself studying how disease could threaten snow leopards.
Livestock depredation by large carnivores is a major conservation challenge that results in economic loss and emotional trauma for livestock owners. This sets the stage for retaliatory killing of carnivores, such as the snow leopard. But many of these attacks can be prevented with a simple solution—predator-proof corrals for sheep and goats!
Want to put your snow leopard spotting skills to the ultimate test? Help our science team test their new Snow Leopard ID Training Program and have fun practicing your own identification skills. With each question, you are giving our team a better understanding of any bugs that might be lurking in the code of this program. We hope that the program, once free from all known bugs, will help improve the reliability of our assessments of snow leopard populations.
In 2012 Dr. Li Juan became the first female scientist to earn a PhD in zoology with a focus on snow leopard conservation. She continued to pursue a post doc at University of California, Berkeley and has recently published a new paper in collaboration with scientists from around the world. Here Dr. Li Juan shares with us her new study recently published in the journal Biological Conservation.
