As a thank you gift to our wedding guests, my wife and I 'adopted' snow leopards from the Snow Leopard Trust in the name of each of our wedding guest/couples. We felt that rather than gift our guest with another cute trinket or a potentially forgettable treat, we could use the opportunity to make a difference in the world by giving a lasting gift to our friends and family, and spread the word of the amazing work the SLT does. Our guests received personalized thank you packets from the trust including an informative breakdown of what exactly the Snow Leopard Trust does, as well as a super cute snow leopard plushy. Our plushy lives in our living room and it reminds us of our special day whenever we look at it. The staff at the Snow Leopard Trust were absolutely wonderful to work with in setting up our gifts, and they continue to send us personalized notes every year to thank us. They really do appreciate their donors. And I should note that our gifts (my wife's idea) was certainly a hit with our guests :).
Review from #MyGivingStory
Wonderful, wonderful organization.
Brings attention to the plight of the snow leopards whilst working with native people to support their habitat and bring money into their community whilst supporting these beautiful creatures.
Four Paws up!
I love seeing their wonderful pictures everyday on Facebook. Congrats!
I have had a life long love and enamoration of the Snow Leopard. When I saw one at the Siegfried and Roy show in Las Vegas, I literally cried. I want to commend the Snow Leopard Trust on all of their work to help observe AND preserve this most mystical and magical animal. It is only through education we can learn how to help them continue on in their natural and man made habitats and allowing us the privilege of enjoying them from afar. Thank you and may you have many more years helping my favorite of the big cats.
I love Snow Leopard Trust for the great job they do trying to preserve these majestic creatures. They frequently keep us up to date with important information about the feline status in addition to posting interesting and entertaining stories about these magnificent felines.
The International Snow Leopard Trust is an amazing organization. They are dedicated to the preservation of snow leopards and spreading awareness world wide.
Snow Leopard Trust is a hard working organization dedicated to the preservation of Snow Leopards. They work closely with the people in local communities in the areas of the world where wild Snow Leopard's exist to not only educate but to gain a close relationship with the people who in turn make handmade items of interest to be sold to the public in order to earn the funds needed to try and keep Snow Leopards safe. They inform the public about the need to conserve and protect the last remaining Snow Leopard's in the wild.
It's outstanding what this organization has done and continues to do to preserve and protect our wildlife. I am sometimes overwhelmed at the stupidity of man keeping these beautiful big cats as trophies then when they tire of them for whatever reason they leave them in horrendous conditions. We shouldn't need organizations like this but we do and I for when am honored to do my bit letting people know how we can protect and support our beautiful wildlife through these fantastic sanctuaries. I applaud all that volunteer/help/support and love these magnificent animals. THANK YOU ALL.
The Snow Leopard Trust is an exemplary organization that impacts my life positively ever day by simply showing up in my Facebook feed or email inbox. The informative, photographically stunning posts by this committed team of professionals and enthusiasts alike truly brighten my day while providing a seemingly endless array of interesting educational and motivational information that offer me the opportunity to help provide the funds so desperately needed to protect these sacred and endangered creatures, and assist them to continue to thrive in their dwindling natural habitats. If not for this group, myself and undoubtedly many others, would not have such an exciting menu of options to promote and provide conservation aid and education. Thank you, Snow Leopard Trust!
I have several animal sites on Facebook. Snow Leopard trust is the one i look forward to reading the most. The stories and the pictures are amazing. Never unsafe to show to children or animal lovers. And it keeps me up to date on my favorite animal.
I am a massive respecter of felines and I love the posts on Facebook about the Snow Leopards. These animals are so majestic, they make me cry. The Snow Leopard Trust posts have encouraged me to write a story about a Snow Leopard family in the Himalayas.
The Snow Leopard Trust and the work the persons do with the snow leopards and the human entity of the mountains is so far above many of the other environmental organizations. I have been an on-line email newsletter receiver for about three years now and have followed the various snow leopards through their hunting grounds and been there at the birth of their litters. How exciting is this organization? Just the most exciting organization that has ever existed in such terrain. Thank you for sharing this very beautiful creature with the world and may the play express the beauty of the work that Snow Leopard Trust has been creating for many years.
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.
Anything that anybody can do to help save these gorgeous creatures automatically earns a moral and ethical star in one's crown. They do an excellent job educating people about snow leopards, their habitat and the humans and other creatures who live with them in the Himalayas. They deserve all the help they can get.
I discovered the Snow Leopard Trust 1 year ago after visiting our local zoo and seeing the snow leopard there. I am very impressed by the work SLT is doing. They are working on ALL sides of the issue, taking into account the lives of the villagers who live near snow leopards as well as the cats themselves.
I became a monthly donor to SLT because I truly believe that we must put our money where our heart is - and we must work TOGETHER to save not only the snow leopards, but all of our great cats. I also really appreciate the fact that SLT does not send me a bunch of junk mail and "horror" stories - their monthly emails are upbeat, factual and interesting.
There are fewer than 7,000 snow leopards left in this world. Were it not for the Snow Leopard Trust, the fate of these animals would be even more perilous than it is now.

I have 'sponsored' the Snow Leopard Trust for a few years now and have seen progress in their work which is due in large part to the donations/memberships/sponsors that they have. The products which are made for sale are good quality and fun. This is one of the only organizations which I continue to support even when money is tight because I know they do what they say they are doing, and I think it is truly important work - not just for the leopards, but for the whole of the world where the leopards reside, the people, the land, and all of us to boot!

The Snow Leopard Trust is a wonderful organization! I have been financially supporting them for years, and see the progress they are making not only via "Snow Leopard Tracks" mailings, but through the internet as well. They are doing a fantastic job keeping the snow leopard population where they should be, in the wild!
