Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animals, Environment, Natural Resources Conservation & Protection, Protection of Endangered Species

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.

Target demographics: protect these endangered cats and their natural habitat

Direct beneficiaries per year: Our partner communities in China, India, Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia, and Pakistan - and the snow leopard of course!

Geographic areas served: five snow leopard range countries

Programs: Snow Leopard Enterprises, which 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. The Trust also helps communities establish livestock insurance programs, where herders can pay a premium to insure their goats and sheep against predation by snow leopards, bears, and wolves - making the financial impact of losing animals much easier to bear, and leading to increased tolerance towards these predators. Through its Ecosystem Health project, the Trust also helps establish livestock vaccination programs in snow leopard habitat; lowering livestock mortality rates and helping herders further secure their livelihood.

For as long as I can remember, snow leopards have always been my favorite animal. I was so happy to have found SLT. I make sure to order their calendar every year, and I always love the photos they provide with their emails.
As regards the work they do, giving people opportunity to work and earn without hunting the leopards, researching leopard habits, helping fence in the locals' livestock so as to not be endangered by the leopards, etc. is all fantastic. I completely support it all.

This organization both informs and protects, always the winning combination. They help fund research that is fundamental in better understanding and protecting Snow Leopards, while helping local population improve their lives. I really believe they play a crucial role in the Snow Leopards' survival in the wild.

I donate to many conservation groups, but for many years the Snow Leopard Trust has been one of my major beneficiaries because I believe they do good work. They sponsor basic research on snow leopard ecology, including radio-tracking and monitoring wild populations in the remote mountains of Asia. They work with local people to reduce killings of snow leopards, to support local incomes and wildlife rangers. They protected prime snow leopard habitat from a mining threat in Mongolia, and that land is now a national reserve. They sponsor international conferences and efforts to protect snow leopards.

I became a member of Snow Leopard Trust in 2009 when my family and I lived in the Seattle area. This organization's passion and commitment are so evident through their frequent photos, videos, updates, and simply being out there in the public to educate us and inspire us to care and take action. I would see their booth at every environmental event that I would attend. Thank you so very much for being one of my heroes! Thank you very much for your tremendous work and dedication to snow leopards!

If even HALF of the actions and efforts by this group come to fruition, I would call them a success.

Protecting and preserving these magnificent cats in these remote places is a wonderful mission. It can only be achieved with the co-operation and agreement of the local human populations. It appears ISLT is on the right path. I wish them continued and greater success.

The Snow Leopard Trust appears to be achieving outstanding results in reaching out to native peoples in the far-flung, remote areas of Central Asia, which are the last strongholds of this magnificent, reclusive cat.

Ecological and conservation NGOs are a relatively new concept to many of these areas, yet the Snow Leopard Trust has achieved inspiring success. I actively read their newsletters and updates, and have been impressed, that despite the diversity of the peoples, the immense distances and sometimes almost inaccesible territories, the Snow Leopards Trust has built relationships, formed working alliances, built trust and confidence, and is educating people on the value of biological diversity, and subsequently, is reducing the loss of these creatures due to human activity.

Most sensible, is the program of reimbursement to local farmers and herders for the loss of livestock, and their attempt to promote other economical alternatives for local herder villages. I have gladly volunteered to pay for the loss of a sheep or goat if it means the preservation of one of these cats.

Most impressive, it appears this organization achieves their results with a relatively small, dedicated group of people, both here in the West, and on-site in Asia, without a great deal of overhead or top-heavy apparatus. I am pleased to recommend, without qualification, Snow Leopard Trust, as one of the outstanding ecological NGOs that is making a difference. Without them, these magnificant cats would be even more imperiled.

Snow Leopard Trust is protecting one of the rarest, most vulnerable cats in some of the most wild and inaccessible lands. Bringing these cats into the limelight brings international focus on fragile ecosystems, marginalized economies and vanishing cultures. Their inclusive approach to conservation is the only way to make real change, especially when dealing with localized and difficult issues in varied and often adversarial governments.

The Snow Leopard Trust is one of my favorite nonprofits. In saving these magnificent animals, they engage the local community, alleviating their concerns, empowering them to make livings while sharing space with the animals around them.

In regard to conservation organizations, SLT is top notch! They truly understand the concept of community based conservation which has proven to be most effective. They are not selfish in keeping the secret to their success. In fact they teach others how to do it in their Partners Principles. They are generous in their relationships with Zoos and we couldn't ask for a better conservation partner.

Having grown up in a Central Asian country I have always been admiring nature's beauty and the mountains. Snow leopard, also known as "ilbirs" in my country, is integral to the snow-white peaks and the environment that I have known since my childhood. An elusive animal so graceful and agile was part of the stories and fairy tales that I heard from my parents and read in the books. Unfortunately, in today's reality, ordinary people and the government are not able to provide safe habitats for snow leopards. The Snow Leopard Trust has brought together the enthusiasts and researchers and makes an enormous effort in working with local communities. They promote conservation programs and try to protect the endangered snow leopard.

While this charity gets good coverage to aid in their donations, I think the work that they do is priceless. Working with community members in the area where snow leopards are found is the best way to help keep these animals safe. The Trust's continued work shows how we humans can live peacefully with these great cats. Poachers can be eliminated with many eyes keeping watch over this precious animal. I'm hoping communities around the globe do the same to protect their animals against the illegal wildlife trade.

I became aware of this endangered specie some years ago and was intrigued by how little was known about the life of such an iconic animal. Through the Snow Leopard Trust I have learnt so much about their lives. But, probably the the most satisfying thing is the development of projects in the many inhospital places they are found and the efforts to change the thinking of the various inhabitants to preserve the specie instead of killing them, despite the fact that Snow Leopards kill their livestock in order to survive. I am sure this has become a difficult thing to change as their livestock is their main source of income with little other options in the remote areas in which many of these people live.

However, the Snow Leopard Trust has been doing remarkable things over the years in producing initiatives to help these people to look at other additional ways of support. In addition, the educational programmes that are set up, provide the younger generation with the knowledge to hopefully create a lasting existance for these wonderful animals.

Without the donations and support of the many people and organisations involved in providing a platform for their future, the existance of the Snow Leopard would be even bleaker. It's always a great pleasure to read the regular newsletters and learn more about the latest initiatives and see the latest pictures of these wonderful animals in their habitat.

Snow leopards are some of the least known and therefore poorly understood species on Earth, habiting harsh environments. The Snow Leopard Trust works tirelessly to study these magnificent ghosts, providing valuable research on their environment, habits, mating, and food cycle. Meanwhile, snow leopards continue to be threatened by loss of environment, food scarcity, and the encroachment of mankind. We need to protect and preserve snow leopards now, before they become extinct. Please support this extremely worthwhile organization in its goals to provide support for snow leopards: by learning more about them, providing information and education to native peoples who cohabit the areas where snow leopards roam, and by raising the world’s awareness of this magnificent species in all its glory.

Snow leopards are truly remarkable! These breathtaking cats not only live at 13,000 feet, but they hunt at that elevation as well. Adding to the challenge, the terrain does not level off to become flat where they make their home; therefore, they have to chase and bring-down prey on jagged mountains in an area equivalent to being the ceiling of the earth. Due to an increase in human population in this area, people have moved into the land previously only home to snow leopards and their prey. This has caused innumerable conflicts between humans and snow leopards resulting in the dwindling of their population. Since its inception, International Snow Leopard Trust has been committed to educate local villagers on the importance of sharing the land with snow leopards by showing them, e.g. alternative methods of earning money and constructing better fences to protect their livestock from snow leopards, which results in less snow leopards being killed by farmers. This education has been proven to raise the number of wild snow leopards. The International Snow Leopard Trust does the entire world a great service through their tireless efforts to save this beautiful animal. I am so proud to be a member of this organization.

I fell in love with Snow Leopards at age 10 when my grandfather took me to the Copenhagen, Denmark, zoo where we saw the cutest Snow Leopard cub ever. I bought a postcard of him still treasured today at 75. Since that trip, I have loved all Leopards to the extreme some might say when more often than not seeing me in all sorts of Leopard clothes, shoes, jewelry and even bags. Of course, only fake Leopard fur is acceptable. Thanks for giving me the chance to be part of your great work also enabling me to support all Leopards. Looking forward to your annual Snow Leopard calendar. Let me add that I am an animal artist and have several Leopard artworks - my own and that of others - on my walls. I can't have too much Leopard "stuff" around.

Sincere thanks..... Inge Alger

Although my 'discretionary spending' is extremely limited, the Snow Leopard Trust is always at the very top of my charitable giving.

I love not just that the international Snow Leopard Trust -- now celebrating 40 years of leadership in the global effort to study and save these magnificent cats -- leads not only with its highly successful scientific research and field studies, successfully negotiating conservation cooperation among (otherwise often highly contentious) governments throughout the 12 snow leopard habitat nations, but especially its pioneering success promoting community-based conservation in partnership with the remote herder and farmer peoples who share the remote regions of the snow leopard habitats.

The Snow Leopard Trust achieves all this with remarkably well-managed overhead: the budget is out there demonstrably making-a-difference.

"Far exceeds expectations"!

40 years of a specific wild cat conservation organization speaks volumes for Snow Leopard Trust alone, honestly. Between actively monitoring snow leopards in their natural habitat by placing camera traps in locations with evidence of individual cats to helping local villages protect their livestock (livelihood) from predation, they understand that conservation is more than just protecting an individual specimen or even an individual species. Snow leopards, like most cats of their size, are apex predators and an umbrella species that determines the health of an ecosystem. Protecting snow leopards is protecting their environment and vice versa. Snow Leopard Trust has proven they’re dedicated to exactly this.

All wild cats are important to me, and the health of our Earth, and must be protected. Snow Leopard Trust does great and needed work. When I donate I am confident that my donation is going where I want my money to go - to the preservation of Snow Leopards.

I am disabled with an extremely limited income. Before I give to a charity and/or non-profit I do my homework. I research the ratings of the organizations on Charity Navigator and CharityWatch. If one or both give the charity or non-profit a high rating then I know I can donate with confidence. Charity Navigator gives the Snow Leopard Trust a very high rating.

Snow Leopards are not only magnificent animals but they are vital to the ecosystems they inhabit. The Snow Leopard Trust's work to save them is also vital.

I have been a supporter of the Snow Leopard Trust for over 7 years and my only regret is that I cannot afford to donate more. But I can also speak up and share their work. One of the most valuable things they do is to work to allow the big cats to live in harmony with the people of their habitat. Insurance plans have been implemented to help the local people recover when a snow leopard kills one of the livestock. The Trust has also done great work in studying the leopards without infringing on their habitat. Although the big cats don't realize it, there are wonderful people watching out for them.

I have supported the Snow Leopard Trust for several years and I only have two regrets - that I can't donate more money and that I can't join them in their work in Asia. I love all animals but especially big cats. And the snow leopards are magical. The Snow Leopard Trust is working to track the leopards, to allow us to learn more about them in order to help protect them. And they are doing amazing work helping to set up plans with local people to protect both the leopards and the villagers' livelihood. This is critical work and their methods can be blueprints for work with other wildlife. This is the type of work that will help us save our planet. Nothing is more important.

Snow Leopard Trust also spreads awareness on social media (I first learned about them on Facebook) by sharing interesting articles and video clips about snow leopards, and has also hosted many online events, inviting people to join in, get involved, ask questions, learn about snow leopards and why they are so important to the mountain ecosystem, and to help preserve them. Snow Leopard Trust encourages people into action - everyone can do something, be it donating, sharing information on social media, volunteering, or symbolically adopting a snow leopard, for instance.

I discovered SNT through the conservation work that was featured in documentaries I viewed online. All of their efforts take place in the central Asian regions where snow leopards are indigenous. They set the model standard for snow leopard conservation. The single greatest threat to these big cats are human animal conflicts. SNT established an innovative solution to the animosity Sheppard's harbor towards snow leopards for occasionally poaching from their flock. A trust fund. SNT works with people, if they don't retaliate and kill the big cat, SLT will compensate them for their losses.

There are videos online where snow leopards have killed livestock but the farmers have not retaliated. Instead they contacted SLT who dispatched people to trap the cats, compensate the farmers and move the cats to a more appropriate location.

This is an organization that has the resources to work with governments in the developing world to protect snow leopards from extinction in the wild.

I donate and attend webinars as well as wear my merchandise with pride. #savethesnows
