Save the Snow Leopards

By Paige Barr & Hallie Levi

Why are Snow Leopards Endangered?

The snow leopard is an endangered species, there are only 4,000- 7,500 left and 700 of those are in zoos. The snow leopards are endangered because of humans. They are pushing their livestock into their habitat, because the overgrazing animals harm the mountain and force the snow leopards to leave. Humans are the cause of this endangerment and humans are the only ones who can help.

Ways to Help

Alison Beers devoted her entire 9th birthday to raising money for the wild snow leopards, she raised $255. This shows that kids can play a huge role in the saving of earth’s animals! If you want to help you can do a lot such as fundraisers, rummage sales, bake sales, car washes, also you can get rid of all of that annoying change and turn it into money so you can donate it! You could also stop pushing your livestock into their habitat and start decreasing your farmland in size. Please, humans are the only things that snow leopards have left.
RARE SNOW LEOPARDS OF ASIA

Habitat

They live in the mountain ranges of Central & South Asia, they live at least 9,800-17,000 feet above sea level. The mountain ranges are also very steep and rocky. Their habitat covers about 60% of China. The snow leopard plays a huge role in their ecosystem by controlling the population and health of the wild, because they control growth of herbivore's population, weeding out sick and old herbivores. So they avoid risk of herbivores eating all of the available seed, leaves, and roots leading to an attack on wildlife.
