Adopt a snow leopard--support our efforts to protect this & other endangered species #SpeciesOfTheDay

Inhabiting the rugged, mountainous terrain of Central Asia and the Himalayan region, snow leopards have long hind limbs and shortened front limbs, which allow them to leap 20 to 50 feet through the air. The diet of these cats varies by region and season, but consists mostly of wild sheep and goats, and smaller animals such as pikas, zokors and marmots. Snow leopards are threatened by habitat loss, diminished food supply, hunting for the illegal wildlife trade and revenge killings by herders. WWF works with local people and supports research and habitat conservation projects to protect these beautiful cats throughout their range.
