Our Work for Snow Leopard Conservation

From conflict to coexistence

In the Himalayas, habitat degradation and loss of their natural wild prey bring snow leopards very close to human settlements which often result in predation on livestock - the only source of income for the local community. As a result, hundreds of cattle have been killed in this region. In the past, this resulted in snow leopards being killed in retaliation. Regular interaction and snow leopard conservation awareness programmes for local communities has helped reduce retaliatory killing and hunting of the snow leopard.

From NONE to 100 predator proof pens Protecting livelihood

When a snow leopard enters an unprotected livestock enclosure, as many as 30 animals can die, some killed by snow leopard and some dying of sheer fear. Imagine losing an entire herd of livestock that is your only source of income. Our predator-proof pens are working. 100 predator-proof pens that have been installed in conflict hotspots in the remotest parts of Western Himalayas have resulted in ZERO cattle deaths and ZERO snow leopard kills.

30,000 sq kms of snow leopard habitat surveyed

Our first snow leopard survey was a humble start with a vision to ensure that conservation of snow leopards and their Himalayan abode is based on rigorous science. Today, our extensive field studies in remote and rugged mountains of Jammu & Kashmir, Uttarakhand, Arunachal Pradesh and Sikkim are helping us build participatory conservation plans to protect Snow Leopards while safeguarding local livelihoods. Support our work. Donate Now.

NO Retaliatory killing of the snow leopard

In villages where we have installed the predator proof pens, there has been no report of cattle kills have been reported and as a result retaliatory killing of the snow leopard has dropped to Zero.

Every species saved is a win for future generations. #NurtureNature
