The snow leopard is a vulnerable species with an estimated 4,080 to 6,590 individuals located in Afghanistan, Bhutan, China, India, Mongolia, Nepal, Pakistan and Russia.

Snow leopards are primarily killed by poachers for its fur, but also in the course of retaliatory killings. NGOs such as the Snow Leopard Conservancy India Trust work to protect snow leopards through financial mechanisms, education and ranger training, among other things. The survival of snow leopards is paramount to the balance of the ecosystem.
