Elusive Snow Leopards – Video Included

The Art of Patience: Seeking the Snow Leopard of Tibet – Sylvain Tesson

This book is about so much more than Tesson’s trek through Tibet looking for the elusive Snow Leopard. 
It is full of insightful, passionate, inspirational observations on nature and the profound challenges we have created for animal species across the globe.
It is a warning and perhaps Tesson’s emotional goodbye to our vanishing places, nature, and all the animals that should have an opportunity to live unchallenged by humankind. 
“The Art of Patience” is beautifully written, weaving widely known and obscure references to help make his emotional point.
For me, it was one of those “I can’t put this book down”enjoyments.
A journey in search of one of the most elusive creatures on the planet

Available on Amazon

Snow Leopard Trust

A Woodland Park Zoo Conservation Partner

Woodland Park Zoo supports the Snow Leopard Trust (SLT). Based in Seattle, it was created in 1981 by the late Woodland Park Zoo staff member Helen Freeman. Through innovative programs, effective partnerships, and the latest science, the SLT is saving these endangered cats and improving the lives of people who live in the snow leopard countries of Central Asia including Russia, Afghanistan, China, India, Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia, Nepal and Pakistan.

In 2015, SLT worked with the government of Kyrgyzstan to turn a former hunting reserve called Shamshy into a wildlife refuge. For many years this 100-square mile area in the northern Tian Shan mountains had been used by commercial hunting companies to host wealthy trophy hunters in search of ibex or argali—both important prey species for snow leopards. Within one year remote cameras placed in the reserve recorded the first pictures of wild snow leopards there. This is evidence that as prey populations recover, snow leopard populations can recover too.
