Nepal Snow Leopard Action Plan

In 2005, Resources Himalaya Foundation prepared the Snow Leopard Conservation Action Plan for Nepal, using the expertise of Dr. Pralad Yonzon and his team. The goal of the action plan is to continue Nepal's credible effort to maintain viable populations of the snow leopard throughout its range, minimize habitat degradation and fragmentation, resolve conflict with resident communities, and, thus, maintain ecosystem integrity of the Nepal-Himalaya.

 

The Snow Leopard Conservation Action Plan attempts to meet the dual challenges by: 1) protecting a flagship species; and 2) alleviating livestock depredation losses faced by communities through grass-root measures and initiatives. To implement a science-based conservation action plan with a socio-cultural understanding of mountain communities, eight objectives that carry significant values in cross-sectoral approaches have been focused upon. These objectives are supported by 44 program activities that may require $ 2.92 million over a period of 10 years. Write to This email address is being protected from spambots.
