The elegant snow leopard is one of the world’s most elusive cats.

Powerful, captivating and incredibly vulnerable to poaching and loss of prey, they are sparsely distributed across 12 countries in central Asia, and are usually found in high, rugged mountain landscapes at elevations of 3,000 – 4,500m. To coincide with World Snow Leopard Day, we’d like to invite you to get to know more about this elusive cat. We’ve got some fantastic free resources for you to enjoy along the way; including fact sheets, craft activities and a free downloadable snow leopard poster!
