These endangered cats have become increasingly rare in the last decades. Their famously elusive nature makes snow leopards hard to find – so these stunning pictures are a precious rarity!

You can help protect this majestic cat and its relatives by making a donation to support our snow leopard conservation programs in five Asian countries.

We can share these photos with you thanks thanks to the dedication and great work of an outstanding field team recruited from local communities!
