World Snow Leopard Day, 23 October

This World Snow Leopard Day, learn more about the elusive snow leopard and what you can do to protect them.

The snow leopard: elegant and elusive.

Powerful, captivating and incredibly vulnerable to poaching and loss of prey, they are sparsely distributed across 12 countries in central Asia, and are usually found in high, rugged mountain landscapes at elevations of 3,000 – 4,500m. To coincide with World Snow Leopard Day, we’d like to invite you to get to know more about this elusive cat. We've got four simple - and fun - ways to show your support; from learning more about this incredible species, to crafting a colourful door hanger or purchasing one of our striking snow leopard badges!
