Founded in 1981, Snow Leopard Trust (SLT) is a recognized leader in implementing research and engaging local communities in an effort to secure the future of wild snow leopards across 12 range countries in South and Central Asia. SLT has teams of scientists and local conservationists in five key range countries that together contain over 75% of the world's snow leopard population. SLT works with governments and policy-makers in all 12 countries where this endangered cat exists-Afghanistan, Bhutan, China, India, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia, Nepal, Pakistan, Tajikistan, Russia, and Uzbekistan through the Global Snow Leopard Ecosystem Protection Program (GSLEP). SLT partners with local communities to collectively find ways for snow leopards to coexist peacefully with the people sharing their habitat. Through community-based programs, conservation interventions are carried out with the sensitivity and respect necessary to cultivate trust and encourage positive ecological outcomes.
