Snow Leopard Facts

5 Snow Leopard Facts

  1. Snow leopards are amongst the most elusive of the big cats and tend to live in the mountains of Central Asia. The snow leopard is listed as endangered by the IUCN.
  2. Snow leopards are powerful predators and have the ability to kill prey up to three times their body weight.
  3. Snow leopards are able to walk in the snow because of their wide fur covered feet which act as natural snow shoes.
  4. Snow leopards live at extremely high altitudes and are found as high as 3500 metres above sea level. During the summer snow leopards climb to as high as 5000 metres above sea level to stay cool.
  5. The fur on the belly of a snow leopard is roughly 5 inches thick!

Why Adopt a Snow Leopard?

The snow leopard was first listed by the IUCN as endangered in 1972. Since then not much has improved and populations of this elusive big cat has been falling across their range. We can thank poaching for the fall in snow leopard numbers because the animal is hunted for its skin and body parts which are used in Eastern medicine. The species has also lost a lot of its natural prey due to habitat destruction and lack of awareness amongst the local population. Here are 5 reasons why you should adopt a snow leopard today.

1. Help prevent habitat loss and human conflict.

The major threat to the snow leopard is habitat loss and human conflict. Your adoption will provide WWF with the necessary funds to educate people who live in areas with snow leopards and raise their awareness.

2. Help stop the poaching of snow leopards.

Poaching is another serious problem facing the snow leopard. Your adoption will help WWF in its attempts to reduce or eliminate this threat by helping train and equip anti-poaching patrols. WWF will also make the public aware that there is no medicinal value from the snow leopards and reduce demand for its body parts.

3. Help stop retaliatory killings.

Snow leopards are often killed in retaliation by farmers whose livestock are hunted for food by the snow leopard in the absence of traditional prey. Your adoption will help WWF fund compensation schemes for farmers who lose livestock to snow leopards and in the process prevent retaliatory killings.

4. Help WWF increase populations of traditional snow leopard prey.

WWF also runs programs to increase the number of wild prey in areas where the snow leopard lives. Your adoption will help in the effort to construct the ideal balance between predator and prey and hopefully lead to an increase in snow leopard numbers.

5. A snow leopard adoption makes the perfect present.

A snow leopard adoption makes the perfect present for someone who cares about animal conservation. For just £3 a month they will receive a cuddly toy, gift pack and plenty of other goodies.
