Thank you for participating in our 40th Anniversary celebrations this year! We are grateful for the immeasurable support you have provided not only over the past twelve months, but also over the past 40 years as we continue to navigate our mission to protect snow leopards in the wild.
When we envisioned how we wanted to celebrate this milestone, we knew our goal was to bring as many people into the fold as possible: snow leopard champions from years past, current monthly donors, new enthusiasts and everyone in between. Our conservation work is strengthened by people taking an interest in the world around them – and over the past four decades, your interest and support has made so much possible that our Founder, Helen Freeman, would no doubt be proud of.
To showcase the possibilities you have transformed into reality, we have put together the following post documenting the immense changes between where we started as a conservation organization 40 years ago and where we are today. While it is impossible to quickly summarize all our collective accomplishments, this gives you a small glimpse of the strides we’ve made in protecting wild snow leopards through our collaborative partnerships.
As you read through, it is our hope that you feel the same pride as we do.
Thank you for being a part of our past, present and future.
