Core Principles of Snow Leopard Conservation


The Pillars of Snow Leopard Conservation

The Snow Leopard Network, a worldwide organization of snow leopard experts dedicated to facilitating the exchange of information between individuals for the purpose of snow leopard conservation, has developed a set of core conservation principles for restoring and maintaining viable snow leopard populations.

As outlined in the revised Snow Leopard Survival Strategy of 2013, the Snow Leopard Network recommends that the conservation actions implemented by governmental and non-governmental stakeholders be designed and managed according to the criteria outlined in the pages to follow.

However, these recommended criteria may subsequently be modified after further consultation with the snow leopard range countries and other experts.
