The Ethical Conservation Alliance (ECA) is inspiring a growing collaborative movement towards ethical nature conservation across the world’s lands and oceans. Dedicated to changing the way conservation is practiced, this global alliance is establishing new standards to make conservation more equitable, just and effective.
Many of you know we use motion-activated cameras to study snow leopard populations, behavior, and habitat use. But those cameras, while crucial for research, only take low-resolution images. The beautiful photos you see in our calendars and newsletters are nearly always donated by talented wildlife photographers who support our mission to protect snow leopards. We asked one such photographer, Sascha Fonseca, about his recent expedition with our team in Kyrgyzstan.
When a fellow Zookeeper from Seattle’s Woodland Park Zoo reached out to us to make a donation in honor of her colleague’s retirement after 35 years, we knew we wanted to highlight Allison Barr’s story. It is an incredible testament to how inspiration breeds inspiration and exemplifies the ripple effect of what can happen when you share your passion and dedication with others.
The critically acclaimed Living with Snow Leopards series transports you to Asia’s high mountains to experience the reality of living with this endangered big cat in your own backyard. See firsthand how families in snow leopard range countries navigate the challenges of coexisting with snow leopards.
Members of our team recently visited Uganda with partners from Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, and Bhutan as part of UNEP’s Vanishing Treasures programme. Yes, Uganda, where some of the world’s last remaining mountain gorillas live. You may wonder what connects snow leopards to mountain gorillas.
One of our researchers recently admitted to being a “crappy birder,” so we created a fun birding quiz to help bolster his knowledge. Can you identify these 13 bird species found in Asia’s high mountains?
A new scientific journal launched with support from Snow Leopard Trust scientists aims to make research about the elusive and difficult-to-study snow leopard freely accessible.
Almost a decade after we first met Tsetsen, we are saying goodbye to this intrepid cat. His legacy will continue to shape our conservation efforts and the stories we tell about this iconic species.
A huge thank you to our supporters around the world who made #Strides4SnowLeopards and took action for climate change!
“I was knitting socks one winter evening shortly after I began working with Snow Leopard Enterprises in Kibber. When my husband saw me knitting yet again, he gently mocked me. ‘So, do we eat these socks for dinner?’
