The Ultimate Spot the Snow Leopard Challenge

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.

New Study Defines Priorities for Global Snow Leopard Conservation Landscapes

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.

Bringing Pallas’s Cat Conservation Into Focus

The Pallas’s cat (Otocolobus manul) shares remote, mountainous habitat in Central Asia with its bigger “cousin,” the snow leopard. Like the snow leopard, very little is known about this small wild cat. Scientists from across the range have come together in an international effort to study the Pallas’s cat conservation status. In Mongolia’s South Gobi we have also worked to increase awareness of the species among local people.
