My favorite of the big cats, it appears these creatures aren't as elusive as we thought..or hoped.

We've got to do something about this! They are too important and beautiful to let go extinct!!

If you want to do something about this....help solve the problem of human overpopulation and the resulting poverty in Asia.

Until those are addressed....captive breeding programs for snow leopards are the only hope of their salvation.

Sadly noted. Decimating the population of my favorite, majestic cat for fur and parts - mere luxuries.

What a stunning animal!!! Sad to say but these animals along many others residing in the wild,will be here no longer in less then 15 years. Humanity is no more.

Sadly noted. So, sad that the snow leopard is even in a worse state then the tiger.
