For thirty years, the Snow Leopard Trust has worked to keep these big cats safe in the wild. A single principle underlies all of the Snow Leopard Trust's conservation programs: the the snow leopard cannot be saved without the support of the local people where the cat lives.
One of the ways that they ensure community support is by providing livestock insurance programs. These village-managed programs compensate families living in snow leopard areas if they lose livestock to predators. In return, the herders agree to help protect the snow leopard, not only by pledging not to kill the snow leopard but also by agreeing to leave room for the big cat's natural prey to graze.
GreaterGood.org supports these community-based conservation efforts through the Gifts That Give More [tm] program.
