Review for International Snow Leopard Trust, Seattle, WA, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

I am a wildlife biologist who specializes in rare carnivores. I am very impressed by the work conducted by the Snow Leopard Trust. Their biologists work under very difficult conditions, in extremely remote areas, under harsh weather conditions, and yet they use state-of-the-art methods and exhibit not only dedication, but also perserverence to gain evidence of snow leopards to determine how many there are and where they are, so they can be protected from harm and studied.

I know from my own experience how exceptionally difficult it is to work under extreme conditions. It takes passion and conviction for the cause of saving a rare, endangered species that has made extraordinary physiological adaptations to the harsh environment. they inhabit We are blessed that there is a team of dedicated individuals who are ensuring this species will not go extinct. We should all be grateful to everyone who works to save this magnificent creature. The world would be a much better place if everyone was committed to such a worthy cause, saving our natural heritage from humans and habitat destruction.
Thank you for your hard work!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Provide opportunities for professional wildlife biologists to assist with data collection, data entry, mapping, and any other tasks that are routine, but need to be done. If you require a background and expertise as a wildlife biologist, you would find people who pay careful attention to detail. Many are willing to donate time, pay for our flights, and pay for our food and housing, just for the chance to help with such a worthy cause. I would come for 3 months, if I could be of assistance.
