Ghosts of the Mountains

Let's donate

Snow leopards are so seldom seen their lives remain one of the most mysterious on our planet. But even if many have not been documented in the flesh, human interference has caused their numbers to decline by 20% in the last 20 years.

Last week, for VAKOVAKO’s own World Animal Month, we spotlighted the elusive okapi. Today, we are doing the same for another enigmatic animal dubbed the “ghosts of the mountains.” This animal is so difficult to see, most researchers haven’t observed one in the flesh.

What little we do know about these creatures will fascinate you — so check out our guide to snow leopards below. And become an advocate for them this INTERNATIONAL SNOW LEOPARD DAY.
