Snow Leopard Conservancy celebrates the cat with a camel

Bactrian camels share snow leopard habitat in mongolia

A Bactrian camel will be special guest at the Snow Leopard Conservancy's 10th birthday celebration next week.

The Snow Leopard Conservancy celebrates its 10th birthday next week. Started by world renowned snow leopard expert Dr Rodney Jackson and his wife Darla Hillard, the Conservancy has done ground breaking work in India and other countries to educate communities, research snow leopard habitat and the life of these rare cats.
They’ll be putting on a gala event next week in San Francisco, with talks, exhibitions, auctions, a Himalayan bazaar and a visit from a Bactrian camel, the two humped critically endangered animal that shares its home habitat in Mongolia with snow leopards.
Snowleopardblog.com congratulates the Conservancy – and wishes you best of luck in your work to save wild snow leopards for the next 10 years.

    I am curious to know how the snow leopard hunts. Would it attack a human being?

    snow leopards hunt on their own, mainly by stalking prey like wild goats and wild sheep. There has never been an account of snow leopard attacking human beings – in fact they are known to be very shy and run from humans at all costs.
