Getting Climate-Smart with the Snow Leopard in Central Asia

11 Dec 2020

This brief is one in a series that also includes the mountain gorilla and the Royal Bengal tiger, produced under the Vanishing Treasures programme. Its goal is to highlight how climate change is – and will be – impacting the conservation of the snow leopard in Central Asia, particularly within the countries of Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan.

The brief examines how climate change has multiple, and often interacting, impacts on the snow leopard – be it on its physiology, on the ecosystems and prey species on which it depends, or on the behaviour of humans living in its surroundings – with important feedback loops that directly affects the conservation of this magnificent animal.
