Saving Snow Leopards Blog is 2 years old

Happy 2nd birthday Saving Snow Leopards Blog

Wow, its been a busy year for Saving Snow Leopards Blog. There’s been lots of blogging and lots of travelling and best of all – meeting wonderful committed snow leopard researchers, conservationists and blog readers. I’ve found the snow leopard conservation community to be made up of inspirational people.  Many of you spend months and years in the field away from families, in remote, harsh conditions. During this time there’s no coming home from the office to a nice glass of wine and a warm fire for you, like most of us do after a days work.

You are all doing this for the love of these cats and to help the communities and the ecosystem supporting them.

I’ve met multimillionaires who are giving time and money to save snow leopards. I know you could be playing golf or sailing on yachts instead! (Seriously!) And I’ve met people who are spending every spare cent on this work and living in frugal happiness. My hat off to you all, and more power to you!

And a big thanks to the tens of thousand of Blog visitors and readers. Many  have been generous in their support and comments. I know many of you are doing more than just reading here. You are regularly donating to snow leopard conservation organisations, buying craft products that provide income to villagers and also talking about snow leopards to your friends and family.

And the kids that are writing to me, doing school projects on snow leopards – to you all, I say, please keep it up, you are the future and you’re all making a difference for our beautiful snow leopards.

And where to for the Blog over the next year? Well, I’ve been reflecting on directions and content and while there’ll be more of the same, I’m also going to start a “Guest Blog” on a regular basis. I know readers would love to hear more from researchers in the field and that’s what I’m hoping to do. Please stay tuned and thanks again for all your support in saving snow leopards – I know they appreciate it :-)

    Congratulations to you on your 2nd birthday! The Snow Leopards could not have a better friend, or advocate in this blog! Thank you for the great job you are doing and we are so glad to have met you when you came through Seattle! Also, we had visited the Zoo here in Seattle and by chance they were having a Snow Leopard event and everyone there knew of this blog! Great job on getting the word out.

    thanks Darrell for your kind words and thanks again for you and Beth being such lovely hosts at your Seattle Ballard VR “Treat House”. It was a really pleasant comfortable place to stay, in a lovely neighborhood – ideal :-) I couldn’t have asked for anything better – hope to be back some day :-)

    Congratulations on your second birthday Sibylle – I know how much you love these ‘pussycats’ . We would be all that much poorer in our knowledge of them without your, and the many others who advocate and work on their behalf, preparedness to share your passion and experiences. I also know your mind is always ticking over thinking of new ways to communicate the cause to the wider world and I look forward to hearing and seeing more.

    thanks all, looking forward to some new ideas for the blog in year ahead including getting some guest blogs. Always nice to get feedback and thanks for your support of snow leopards and the people who share their habitat :-)
