Description:

As few as 3,500 Snow Leopards are left in the wild today. The snow leopard is supremely adapted to its mountain home – with their thick furry tails nearly as long as the rest of their bodies, dense, woolly fur and markings that camouflage them against the rocky slopes.

 

The main threat to the snow leopard's survival comes from human activities. Snow leopards are hunted illegally for their pelts. They also face retribution killings from herders over livestock and their habitat is being degraded and fragmented.

Many people in the mountain communities throughout snow leopard habitat live on less than $1 a day. They just don't have resources to protect snow leopards. Luckily, snow leopards have a unprecedented opportunity for added protection from the U.S. Government through the Great Cats and Rare Canids Act - making its way through Congress right now!

Tell Congress to support The Great Cats and Rare Canids Act, and provide much needed funding to protect Snow Leopards and other rare species.

I am not some nature fanatic or anything. In fact, I do enjoy hunting myself. BUT, I don't think people understand the severity of animals becoming extinct. Many don't understand that once they're gone, they are not coming back. The human race has grown into such a selfish race. It's okay to call us the dominant species of the earth, but that DOES NOT mean we can disrespect the animals around us. Be considerate. What if it were the human species going extinct and the animals didn't give a crap. Well that's what many people seem to be doing. So grow up and take some responsibility. If you like steak on the table or bacon for breakfast, go read a freaking book. If you want it around, you should learn to respect it (and all the other nature around us) more.

I think all those poachers out there can get lost! I'm doing an assignment right now on snow leopards in school and ended up here, after all this reading, I believe what people out there are doing is horrible. Not only do you take their homes, kill their relatives, skin them, cook them, but now you're going to kill them out completely! Imagine if all you poachers out there were snow leopards, would you want US to kill YOU? Because I bet my bottom dollar on it you can't beat a bullet in a race, and in a game of life or death you'd lose. So poachers can go find something else to kill and skin, because these Snow Leopards are amazing creatures and don't deserve your crap, I swear, if I was rich id have people hunting YOU down poachers! So remember this, they never did anything to you, so you shouldn't do ANYTHING to them!
if snow leopards go extinct...i go extinct!
Why must poachers kill us and they get all the money for it????
I'm a snow leopard and mackenzie dooley at the same time so don't mess with me poachers!
