The Snow Leopard Conservancy

The Snow Leopard Conservancy advances community-based stewardship of snow leopards by working with local partners and herder communities, which they call the “front line in preserving the biodiversity of Central Asia’s high mountains. We provide needed technical and financial assistance for community-based activities linked to stewardship and biodiversity conservation. The goal is to build “community ownership” of ecosystem health by involving the communities in research on snow leopards, their prey and habitat, blending western science with indigenous knowledge.
