About

At the Snow Leopard Trust we use a combination of approaches that focus on partnering with communities in snow leopard habitat.

Founded in 1981, the Snow Leopard Trust is the world's leading authority on the study and protection of the endangered snow leopard.The snow leopard (Panthera uncia) is an endangered species of cat that lives in the mountains of Central Asia. They are hunted illegally for their pelts, which are sought after especially in Central Asia, Eastern Europe, and Russia for coats and other garments. At the Snow Leopard Trust we use a combination of approaches that focus on partnering with communities in snow leopard habitat.

1. The protection of snow leopards and their habitat, involving local communities in this effort.

2. An improved quality of life for the members of the community.
