Breaking News: Snow Leopard Trust Provides Mongolia Relief Effort

We're helping families in Mongolia recover from a devastating winter

As you might have heard, Mongolia is facing one of the worst winters in three decades: herders have lost an estimated 4.5 million livestock as 19 of 21 provinces were hit by extreme cold and snow. The Snow Leopard Trust has established a relief fund so that we can immediately help families through this difficult time. One of our partners, Snow Leopard Trust UK, is providing $12,000 raised by Snow Leopard Vodka to bring hundreds of herders across 16 districts essential aid such as hay and fodder for their remaining livestock. In addition, our Snow Leopard Enterprises program will help families earn badly-needed income so they can begin to rebuild their lives. Terrible events like this can pressure families to hunt or poach wildlife in order to survive, but with help they can recover without having to resort to such measures.

If you would like to contribute to this winter recovery effort, please earmark checks or donations to “Snow Leopard Enterprises.” If you have any questions please email us at info@snowleopard.org. Thank you!
