Mining Permits in Mongolia Threaten Snow Leopard Habitat and Local Communities

We have recently discovered that mining interests in Mongolia’s South Gobi could threaten the snow leopards we are studying. There are 92 mining permits now covering nearly all of the South Gobi’s Tost Mountains. This area is home to Aztai, Tsagaan, Supermom and dozens of other snow leopards we have come to know over the last year through our long-term study. Currently these permits are issued for exploration, however some have already gone to the exploitation (extraction) phase.

Your help is critical: right now we have the chance to stop more mining permits from entering this destructive extraction phase. Please donate directly to our efforts in Mongolia!
