The Snow Leopard Network is a worldwide organization dedicated to facilitating the exchange of information between individuals around the world for the purpose of snow leopard conservation. Our membership includes leading snow leopard experts in the public, private, and non-profit sectors. It came into being in 2002 as a means for snow leopard experts all across the globe to maintain the same level of contact and cooperation that they experienced at the conference. Since then, membership has grown from the original 65 to over 500. The main goal of SLN is to implement the Snow Leopard Survival Strategy (SLSS), which offers a comprehensive analysis of the issues facing snow leopard conservation. The SLN also maintains a snow leopard bibliography providing our members with access to scholarly articles on snow leopards and related issues.
