Save endangered snow leopards while helping people in Mongolia maintain their livelihood
WWF will give this goat to a herder in Mongolia so that endangered snow leopards are protected.
Because of human encroachment, shrinking habitat, and a diminished food supply, the snow leopard is now considered endangered and its population numbers continue to shrink. As the remaining cats roam the mountainous terrain of Central Asia and the Himalayan region in search of food, they prey on goats, sheep and other livestock that are easy for the snow leopard to hunt.
Unfortunately, when a snow leopard feeds itself on livestock, poor farmers and herders in the region are losing their only source of income.
Herders are therefore poaching the snow leopards - to keep them from killing their livestock.
When you buy a goat for a herder who has no other way to make a living, we eliminate the need to hunt them.
At the same time, it helps to raise awareness in the region, showing that the snow leopard is valuable, endangered and in need of protection.
WWF is also working with local communities to protect the herds that are being attacked and work out ways to increase the population of natural prey for the snow leopard.
