How many people did it take to save the snow leopards of Mongolia?

Beautiful Mongolian landscape, significant snow leopard habitat.

Regular readers of this Blog will recall that last month there was a successful campaign to convince the government of Mongolia to overturn a decision to allow the killing of four snow leopards for ‘research’ purposes. This was a hugely important decision and could not have been achieved without the hard work and dedicated lobbying of many people, including many Mongolian folks on the ground. I’d like to take the opportunity to acknowledge all those I haven’t mentioned in this Blog before – it was an incredible effort of which you can all be proud and supporters of snow leopards everywhere thank you.
