Abstract

The Snow Leopard (Panthera uncia) is a vulnerable species on its way to endangerment. Its population size is around 3,000 individuals who reside in mountainous regions in Asia. The population decline of snow leopards is due to hunting and trapping, problematic native species/diseases, and human encroachment on their habitat. While there are some conservation efforts already in place through action recovery plans, education and awareness programs, trade control, and conservation areas, there is still more that can be done. This poster will discuss the reasons for snow leopard vulnerability and ways conservation efforts can affect the snow leopard population.
