Livestock Fences and Snow Leopard Conservation

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!

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.
