Today is the last day of April, and unfortunately, the last day that these beautiful mountain cats will be featured on Viridorari. Next Monday I will announce the new Animal of the Month for May. I hope you learned a lot about snow leopards from Viridorari posts, and that you have been inspired to take action for endangered animals. Biodiversity is important to all ecosystems, and when animals in those ecosystems go extinct it can cause major ramifications for species that outlive them.
Throughout the month, Viridorari discussed three organizations that support snow leopard conservation, and there are many more besides those three. They are the Snow Leopard Conservancy, Panthera, and the Snow Leopard Trust. I urge you to consider these three organizations and choose one that you would be willing to donate too. All three have many different ways that you can donate.
Final snow leopard fact: Like human fingerprints and tiger stripes, each snow leopard has a unique rosette pattern that sets them apart. When using camera traps, organizations like SLC, Panthera, and SLT use the unique pelt designs to identify each leopard that is photographed. In this way, scientists can develop an accurate count of how many cats are living in the area.
