To conserve snow leopards and natural resources better, we must understand and identify the important roles that women can – and do – play in local societies. In a recently published paper, Snow Leopard Trust researchers examine the role of women and the nuanced intersection between gender and social divisions in the governance of irrigation water in the Spiti Valley – a critical area for snow leopard conservation.
A new paper authored by Snow Leopard Trust’s Charu Mishra and Koustubh Sharma discusses the ethics of camera trapping.
UPDATE: This paper recently received the Editor’s Choice from The Applied Ecologist! Congratulations to all the authors and contributors!
The Snow Leopard Network (SLN), in collaboration with the Global Snow Leopard and Ecosystem Protection Program (GSLEP), Snow Leopard Trust and other partner organizations, brought together over 100 snow leopard researchers and practitioners from across the world in a new interactive training forum for snow leopard conservation.
A better understanding of semi-nomadic herders’ perceptions towards climate change can lead to more successful mitigation efforts.
Join our research team and our Assistant Director of Conservation, Jennifer Snell Rullman, in the Gobi desert as they search for the elusive Ghost of the Mountain.
Monitoring snow leopards is a time-consuming business – but a new AI solution developed in partnership between Microsoft and the Snow Leopard Trust could be a game changer and free up resources to invest in conservation action.
In a rare discovery, researchers from Snow Leopard Conservation Foundation and Snow Leopard Trust located the den site of a wild snow leopard named Dagina in Mongolia’s Tost Mountains. They found three healthy cubs in the den. Dagina is the oldest known wild snow leopard mother in the world.
In the first study ever investigating disease threats to this highly vulnerable species, researchers detect exposure to infections that may pose a threat to wild snow leopards, as well as local people and their livestock.
Scientists from the Snow Leopard Trust and Snow Leopard Conservation Foundation have equipped three wild snow leopards in Mongolia’s Tost Mountains with GPS collars this spring. With these three cats joining the conservation organizations’ joint long-term study, a total of six of these elusive cats are currently being tracked.
Site of the world’s most comprehensive snow leopard study, critical link in a network of Protected Areas and home to more than a dozen of these elusive cats – Mongolia’s Tost Mountains are a unique and irreplaceable snow leopard stronghold.
