Project objectives

With the support from IUCN Save Our Species, the project plans to pilot these programs in 10 villages across five key CKCC valleys. Overall, it is hoped the project will not only reduce poaching and retribution killing of Snow Leopards, but help local herders improve herding and animal husbandry practices and increase their economic opportunities in environmentally sustainable ways.

This project is implemented by Snow Leopard Trust.
