Celebrating Snow Leopards in the Pamir Mountains of Pakistan
Snow Leopard Conservancy is celebrating our fifteen-year partnership with Project Snow Leopard.
*Ghulam Mohammad, Manager of Project Snow Leopard, will describe his heart-pounding encounter with a wild snow leopard - an experience that led to his work educating girls, trekking to remote Karakoram villages, and helping communities monitor and better co-exist with snow leopards.
*Wild Cat Education & Conservation Fund will introduce a special wild ambassador.
*Delicious drinks & finger food will be provided.
Ghulam grew up in a small village high in the Karakoram Mountains. A strong child, he was sent to the pastures to tend the livestock, a job more important than attending school. When a flood destroyed half his village, Ghulam's family moved down from the mountains. Living in town, there was no livestock to tend. Ghulam enrolled in primary school and finally began to satisfy his curiosity and passion for education.
Our partnership has enabled conservation action to reach seventeen mountain villages. Fifty livestock corrals have been made secure from nighttime raiding by snow leopards or wolves. Project Snow Leopard was the first ever recipient from Pakistan of a 2017 Equator Prize, awarded by the United Nations Development Program, recognizing outstanding community efforts to reduce poverty through the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity.
We hope you will come help us celebrate these achievements and ensure that this program continues.
There is ample free parking at the venue.
