Help Save Snow Leopards

Help save endangered snow leopards.
When snow leopard territory is encroached on by herding communities, wild species that snow leopards prey on are driven out to make room for livestock. Snow leopards often turn to hunting the livestock to survive. Herders, whose families also depend on livestock, protect their herds by hunting and killing snow leopards.
These same communities can save the snow leopards, if we help them minimize livestock losses and understand the importance of this incredibly beautiful and elusive species.
Herders lose five times as many livestock to preventable diseases as they do to predators because they do not have access to vaccines. Snow Leopard Trust provides vaccines to protect livestock when herders agree to protect both snow leopards and their wild prey species. Herders also agree not to increase their herds, reducing future encroachment on snow leopard territory.
In addition, Snow Leopard Trust and its partners have created a community-run livestock insurance program to protect herders against loss — and snow leopards against retaliation. Herders pay insurance premiums for livestock, and are reimbursed if the animal is later killed by a predator.
You can help. $15 can protect 12 animals against preventable livestock diseases for herders who agree to help snow leopards. $16.50 can insure a local animal against predation, protecting herders from loss and snow leopards from retribution hunting. Every penny of your donation supports these programs to protect endangered snow leopards.
Through innovative programs, effective partnerships and the latest science, the Snow Leopard Trust is saving the magnificent snow leopard and improving the lives of people who live in the snow leopard countries of Central Asia.
