Snow Leopard Conservation: A Report from the Field
Snow leopards are some of rarest big cats on Earth, only found prowling the heights of the Himalayan Mountains, and sightings are coveted. So how is it possible for scientists to assess the health of wild populations of these famously elusive predators, and what adaptive approaches do conservationists use to protect these vulnerable felines? Join Expedition Leader Payal Mehta in conversation with Ajay Bijoor, Assistant Project Head of the High-Altitude Program at the Snow Leopard Trust, for an enlightening look at what’s involved – and at stake – when it comes to protecting the future of these captivating creatures. Payal and Ajay have been working on snow leopard conservation efforts in the Himalayan alpine wilderness for more than 9 years. Hear about their firsthand experience with on-the-ground challenges, rewards, long-term scientific studies, and surprising new findings related to snow leopard conservation. They will describe ongoing efforts, including the joys and disappointments, that are part of attempting to preserve the snow leopard and its habitat. Get an inside look at Central Asian initiatives to save snow leopards, and elevate your understanding of how conservationists are collaborating with local communities to reduce human-wildlife conflict.
