Regular Updates

Plus updates on your animal three times a year

There are thought to be as few as 4,000 Snow Leopards still living in the wild and they are at threat from poachers, loss of prey, and conflict with humans.

Adopt a Snow Leopard with WWF and protect this beautiful animal. The snow leopard is a powerful, captivating and incredibly athletic animal. They have been known to travel up to 40km a night and leap as far as 15 metres. They truly are one of natures great wonders.

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 have been falling across their range. Poaching is one of the main reasons 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.

With your adoption you help to:

This is a major threat to the snow leopard. Your adoption will help to provide WWF with the necessary funds to educate people who live in areas with snow leopards and raise their awareness of how they can live in peace with snow leopards.

Poaching is another serious problem facing the snow leopard. Your regular contribution will help WWF in its attempts to reduce or eliminate this threat by training 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.

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.

WWF 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.

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.

  5. The fur on the belly of a snow leopard is roughly 5 inches thick!
