How can we help?
- Support snow leopard conservation organizations. If you don't have money for donations, ask if you can help in other ways by contributing your time or holding a fundraiser.
- Reduce consumption of paper, wood products and palm oil that result from rainforest destruction in Southeast Asia. Recycle paper and examine labels of food products and cosmetics to look for "palm oil" and "palm kernel". If a product does not use "certified palm oil" there is a possibility that its production has come at the expense of the rainforest. Similarly when buying a wood product, check to see whether it is "FSC-certified".
