The Snow Leopard Trust is deeply saddened about the passing of Peter Matthiessen.
The acclaimed author and naturalist was a champion of wildlife. Through his work, he shared his passion for nature with millions of readers, inspiring many of them to take action for conservation. Perhaps most famously, Peter Matthiessen firmly anchored the mysterious snow leopard and its mountain habitat in the minds and hearts of generations of readers in the United States and beyond with his National Book Award-winning masterpiece, “The Snow Leopard”. He will be sorely missed.
