Why is the Snow Leopard endangered?

  • The bones, skin, and organs are valuable in traditional Asian medicine.
  • Humans have pushed the boundaries of their livestock further up into the leopard’s territory. Overgrazing has damaged the mountain’s grasslands causing the goats and the sheep to migrate elsewhere where there’s more food leaving the leopard barely anything to eat.
