Snow Leopard Study Program Participation 2007
Big Cat Rescue loves to help out and support wild feline conservation. We were recently asked to participate in a project that collected fecals from captive snow leopards, in order to be used to train dogs to identify the smell. These dogs will then be used out in snow leopard habitat to better help the researchers. Helping out the snow leopard is important as lets face it, the leopard doesn’t have the fact that people can ride up to it sleeping on the plains on a jeep and grow fascinated by it like the lion. It lives in rugged areas that see very little tourism. For more info on this great project check out: www.snowleopard.org and also: www.workingdogsforconservation.
