These beautiful cats have evolved to live in the harshest climates on earth: the steep and snowy mountains of Central Asia. Snow leopards are hunted for their beautiful white-gray coats spotted with large black rosettes. The impoverished families living around snow leopard territories take advantage of demand for their hides. It is believed that there are now fewer than 6,590 snow leopards left in the wild.
You can help the snow leopard by purchasing eco-friendly cat toys from Honest Pet Products, which participates in Snow Leopard Trust’s Fair Trade program that works with poor families in Mongolia. To learn more, visit Snow Leopard Trust.
