We are a group of students from Surrey University working on a crowfunding campaign, to help preserve the remaining number of Snow Leopards currently still free in the wild today. Over the past few decades, the population of Snow Leopards has decreased by over 70% due to the nature of human activties like poaching and climate change, with their pelt being up for sale illegally on the black market.
We feel this is appauling and must be stopped at all costs or else these beautiful animals will cease to exist. To put this into perspective that's the equivalent of the global human population decreasing by 5.6 billion people, equating to the total population of these countries:
China, India, US, Indonesia, Brazil, Pakistan, Nigeria, Bangladesh, Russia, Mexico, Japan, Ethiopia, The Philippines and Vietnam!
The money donated will be given to the World Wide Fund for Nature, who are currently working alonside Tata Housing in India on a project to help conserve Snow Leopards by providing conflict free zones for the Snow Leopards to roam around as well as following enviromental sustainability practices in housing developments.
