Land of the Snow Leopard

Last Friday, on International Snow Leopard Day, Snow Leopard Conservancy hosted a virtual event to highlight the work of the Land of the Snow Leopard Network.

SLC was joined by key members of the Land of the Snow Leopard Network from Central Asia. This gathering highlighted the interconnection of Indigenous People and the sacred Snow Leopard.

We wanted to share the recorded virtual event with the SLN.

The Land of the Snow Leopard Network is an unprecedented conservation initiative, a groundbreaking collaboration between Western conservation science and Indigenous Traditional Knowledge, with the goal of creating pathways for Indigenous involvement in the conservation of snow leopards.For more information please visit

Conservation of Pallas’s cats, (also known as manul), and synergistic impacts on snow leopards and mountain ecosystems.

A virtual event for GSLEP 

Pallas’s cats (also known as manul) share much of their range with snow leopards and the two species face similar threats. Addressing threats to Pallas’s cats can therefore be extended to snow leopards and vice versa and joint conservation efforts will be beneficial for both species and the ecosystems at large. The Pallas’s Cat International Conservation Alliance (PICA for short) invites you to join them in the discussion on how Pallas’s cats and snow leopards are good indicator species for different parts of the ecosystem and how joint conservation efforts will have synergistic effects that will benefit snow leopards, Pallas’s cats, and the mountain ecosystem at large. The meeting took place at the virtual venue ( on Monday 26 Oct, 2020, between 12:00 and 14:00 Bishkek time
