Snow Leopard Trust - since 2010
An awesome charity undertaking lots of ground work too and it is a privilege to be one of their Partners. Lovely people working here.
The snow leopard, 'Snow cat' is an amazing agile cat which is critically endangered and in need of as much support as it can to help secure its future. Its huge beautiful tail helps them balance as they are up steep mountains and this plays a vital role when hunting the goats. Incredible adaptable cats.
The Snow Leopard Trust has programs and staff in 5 countries in Central Asia and support from around the world. These countries are key as together they contain over 75% of the worlds population of wild snow leopards. This charity a leader in the effort to secure the future of the snow leopard. They have conservation programs which encourages and empowers people who live in the cats habitat to help protect their local wildlife and their ecosystems. Education and research play a huge role as the research into this endangered cat informs effective conservation techniques to save it.
The snow leopard trust works with governments, businesses and international organisations to implement conservation approaches, which I think is key too.
They have made much progress including GPS collars collecting an unprecedented amount of data, tracking cubs with their mother and migrating snow leopards.
