12 countries April 17, 2007 10:25 AM

12 countries to live in but they are endangered, why? You would think that they live very high up in the mountains so they would be very hard to kill. Well you would be wrong,people live up their too and these are the ones that we need to educate and put pressure on.

Despite its protected status, this species is still hunted and its skins are sold on the black market. In addition, it has lost some of its habitat to agriculture, which has also threatened its favored prey.

The total population of the snow leopard is now in hundreds rather than thousands. It has been fully protected in India since 1952, and is also protected in the USSR. It is also illegal to possess a coat made from snow leopard fur, but such coats are still sold. Urgent and decisive action must be taken if this species is going to survive into the 21st century.
