Snow Leopard Conservation

Snow leopard populations are declining due to poaching, the illegal trading of their pelts and body parts, and killings by herders when the cats prey on their livestock.  A key group involved in the conservation of the snow leopard is the Snow Leopard Trust.  The Trust has been conducting a long-term study of the cats in Mongolia, which has involved the collaring and tracking of 19 snow leopards.  To date, the group has recorded over 18,000 individual snow leopard locations.  The Wildlife Conservation Society is also engaged in various snow leopard projects, such as the collaring of the snow leopard in Afghanistan for the first time.
