The Snow Leopard Trust Needs Your Vote!


UPDATE: The Snow Leopard Trust won the grant! A massive thanks to those of you who voted for the Trust. The snow leopards of India now have a fighting chance of survival thanks to you and the efforts of the Trust and its local partners. If you wish, you can continue to support the Snow Leopard Trust by visiting their website, adopting a snow leopard, or buying something from their online store.

If, like me, you’ve ever felt guilty about killing an endangered animal whilst playing Tomb Raider, you’d be happy to know that there is something you can do to make up for it and all it takes is the click of a button . (Voting is now closed)

The Snow Leopard Trust needs your help to win an 11,000 euro grant from the European Outdoor Conservation Association (EOCA) to help save snow leopards living in India’s Upper Spiti Valley. Along with their local partners, it plans to take measures to protect the snow leopard’s natural habitat, set up a livestock insurance programme to compensate any rural families who may lose livestock to leopard predation, and run Nature Education Camps so that children can learn more about the local ecology and wildlife protection schemes.

The Trust was founded in 1981 with the aim of researching and protecting the endangered snow leopard and is currently running programmes across five countries – China, Pakistan, India, Mongolia and Kyrgyzstan – which are home to over half of the world’s wild snow leopard populations. Information about snow leopards and the communities that are benefiting from the Trust’s sustainable conservation programmes can be found on their website.

You can learn more about the Trust’s project in India by clicking here and voting will be open until 28th March 2013. Remember, your vote can help change the fate of these rare, magnificent creatures. No registration is required and you can submit your vote in a matter of seconds. Feel free to share the link with your friends and family or with your social network. (Voting is now closed)

Thank you all for your time.
