Snow Leopard in Mongolia Collared

I have some great news from Mongolia. The incredible team there, led by Dr. Tom McCarthy - SLT's Managing Director of Field Programs, have captured their first snow leopard at the Mongolia research site. Below you will find a press release regarding our long-term project in Mongolia's South Gobi region and our success so far with the GPS radio-collaring and trap camera components of this ecological study. Attached is a picture of Aztai (the snow leopard mentioned in the release) and two actual e-mail updates that were sent by Dr. McCarthy from the camp before the snow leopard was successfully captured. In addition to these updates, the Snow Leopard Trust is posting regular updates from this project on both its website and blog at www.blog.snowleopard.org. If you would like to know more, or have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at 206-632-2421.

Thanks you for all of your help in making this and our other conservation efforts a reality!! We have a lot more work to do and couldn't do it without all of your support for our research, community-based conservaiton and education programs.

Sincerely,

Jennifer Snell Rullman

Conservation Program Director
