I’m very proud and delighted (as a result of uploading here at red bubble) to have this image featured on a beautiful world music CD of Kel Pritchard
The total wild population of the snow leopard is estimated at between 4,000 and 7,500 individuals. In 1972 the International Union for the Conservation of Nature, (IUCN) placed the snow leopard on its Red List of Threatened Species as “Endangered” the same classification given the panda and the tiger.
There are also 600-700 snow leopards in zoos around the world.
