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.
These felines are primarily killed by poachers for their fur, but also through 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 actions. The survival of snow leopards is paramount to the balance of the ecosystem.
