Global #HumanDevelopment – which can be measured as a combination of the world’s education, health and living standards – is on course to decline for the first time since 1990 when we introduced the concept.
An estimated 3,000-7,500 snow leopards remain in the wild today. Thinly spread across 12 countries in Central Asia, they are found in high altitudes and rugged, rocky mountain landscapes. Shrinking habitats, poaching and climate change however threaten their very survival but the main reason for their dwindling numbers around the world can be attributed to a single predator: humans.
On today's #WorldSnowleopardDay see how we are working with local communities and partners to eradicate poverty and build livelihoods to ensure sustainable land and resource use, which is critical to the fight to save the snow leopard. https://bit.ly/3ofQkSn
