It is estimated that there are 4500 to 7500
snow leopards that are living in the
mountains of central Asia.
It is believed that 60 per cent of the entire
population live in China.
It is believed they will go extinct in 10 years.
Extinction is when a entire species dies out due
to not adapting to the environment quick
enough. Many animals are poached for the
fur and bones for medicine and decoration,
one of animals is the snow leopard they are
not yet extinct but are endangered.
Sadly snow leopards are poached for there lovely
fur which is highly valued In many countries where
they make it into clothes and accessories. They are
also poached for there bones to make into
medicine. Many of the poachers live in snow
leopard habitats these places have lots of poverty
and poaching gives them an opportunity for more
money, food and shelter.
