Programs: Snow Leopard Enterprises provides herders with the financial assistance, logistical support, equipment, and training they need to turn raw wool into high-quality, felted products such as rugs and clothing. The Trust purchases these products directly from the herders and sells them worldwide to increase awareness about snow leopard conservation. Herders agree to help the Trust protect snow leopards, their prey, and the habitat they all share.

Mission:
Founded in 1981 in Seattle, WA, the Trust is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose mission is to protect the snow leopard and its mountain ecosystem through a balanced approach that addresses the needs of the local people and the environment.

Snow leopards range over two million square kilometers of mountain in Central Asia, including the formidable Himalayas. Experts currently estimate as few as 3,500 exist in the wild, fewer than the world''s tiger population. As an "umbrella" or keystone species, snow leopard conservation has far-reaching importance as it leads to the protection of hundreds of other plants and animals sharing the cat''s ecosystem. The International Snow Leopard Trust is the oldest and largest organization focused solely on saving this important species. The Trust works nationally and internationally to raise awareness about endangered species, and to empower people living within snow leopard range to become stewards of their environment. To this end, the Trust conducts educational outreach, scientific research, and community-based conservation.
