We are thrilled to announce that Snow Leopard Enterprises won the 2011 BBC World challenge! This was only possible because supporters came together from all around the world to cast their votes for the preservation of this rare and beautiful big cat!
Your vote ensures the expansion of our flagship program, Snow Leopard Enterprises, within Kyrgyzstan. This will bring more families into this successful conservation program model that benefits people and wildlife alike. Thanks to your vote, millions of people across the globe will be exposed to the beauty of these amazing cats and the conservation needs they face.
