Saving Mongolia's Snow Leopards

He recently returned from a visit to the Snow Leopard Enterprises project in Mongolia. For generations snow leopards have been seen as an enemy by herders across the mountains of Mongolia. If a herder lost a sheep or a goat to a snow leopard, it caused an economic catastrophe for the family that reinforced a cycle of conflict between humans and this endangered big cat. This system made protecting snow leopards very difficult in the remote parts of Central Asia where snow leopards are found. However, this all started to change in 1998 when two researchers sat down with herders and really tried to understand the challenges facing these rural families who share the land with snow leopards.

But the idea really took off. Each fall, Snow Leopard Trust staff place an order for thousands of products to be made by the herders. Please help us to save the life of Leopard cats (Joho) in Miaoli, Taiwan. Mrs.

Why Snow Leopards Need Help

He has been the executive director of the Snow Leopard Trust since 2000 and recently returned from a visit to the Snow Leopard Enterprises project in Mongolia. This blog post is in response to the comments left by the public following his September 22nd post. Thank you to everyone who posted a comment in response to my blog post on September 22nd. The photo we included by Jason Brown is one of my personal favorites, and I certainly do feel blessed to be able to work on behalf of such a gorgeous animal. Everyone posed great questions about snow leopards in general, and I want to take a moment to talk about why this cat is so important and provide some information on the snow leopards themselves.

Snow Leopards (Panthera uncia) are found in the mountains of 12 countries in Central Asia; Afghanistan, Bhutan, China, India, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia, Nepal, Pakistan, Russia, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan. One last bit of exciting news. Video - Le léopard des neiges sous la menace du changement climatique. Une étude du WWF montre que le changement climatique menace directement le léopard des neiges au Népal. Si la croissance des émissions de gaz à effet de serre se maintient, 30% de son habitat naturel dans l'Himalaya pourraient être affectés par la remontée de la limite des arbres.

India acts to save Asiatic lion by moving it – but hard work has only just begun

Photograph: Nisarg Lakhmani/Corbis Wildlife is under threat in most of India, but there's one state that's clinging to its fauna, if rather too tightly. The state of Gujarat – whose Gir forest shelters the world's only Asiatic lion population – has lost a bitter battle over an ambitious translocation project. For over 18 years, conservationists have been attempting to move a pride of Gir lions to the Kuno sanctuary in the state of Madhya Pradesh. But the Gujarat government stubbornly refused to let the lions go. Finally, on 15 April, after eight years of litigation, the Supreme Court of India cleared the translocation of the lions, though it said an emphatic no to the cheetahs.

The Gujarat government, and Chief Minister Narendra Modi, have been arguing for years that the Gir lions are the "pride of the state".
