A quote from the petition:
"For the purpose of "Scientific Research", the Mongolian government has proposed the hunting and killing of 4- (or more)- endangered Snow Leopards.
The best method to observe the big cat and collect data is to study its habits while it is alive. Killing endangered species is not "conservation". Killing the endangered snow leopard will in no way aid research efforts. Stop this "reseach" project."
The Mongolian government has other ideas about the scientific research, they just want to hunt for snow leopards and make money.
That is distasteful, particularly with the snow leopard. Already in the brink of extinction, the goverment wants to kill them, and they are supposed to be protected by law. Same kind of scientific research as Japan's whaling...
If you think this has gone too far, please, share your opinion and sign this petition.
Very worried Isa Villanen
