Rodney Jackson 3rd time Indianapolis Prize nominee

Dr Rodney Jackson, one of the world's foremost snow leopard researchers has been nominated a third time for the pretigious Indianapolis Prize for wildlife conservation. Go Rodney!

Dr Rodney Jackson, the first person to radio collar a wild snow leopard and director of the Snow Leopard Conservancy has been announced as a three-time finalist for the Indianapolis Prize, the annual $100,000 award for unique contribution to wildlife conservation.

Rodney has done and continues to do a huge job in protecting snow leopards in Central Asia. His focus is on research and community education especially promoting cross-boundary cooperation between snow leopard range countries. Snow leopards don’t understand country boundaries so its important for agencies to work together. “We see  again and again (that) a conservation approach of a single country here and there will not work long term. There needs to be cross-boundary cooperation, ” Rodney said.

Good luck Rodney, we hope third time lucky for you and the SLC! You desereve it!
