Mongolia creates Nature Reserve for Snow Leopards

Snow Leopard Vodka Snow Leopard Trust Tost Mountains Nature Reserve Announcement

Mongolia creates Nature Reserve for Snow Leopards

It is with great pleasure that we announce to you a momentous step towards conserving the Snow Leopards of Mongolia. The Tost Mountains in the South Gobi province have now been approved as an official ‘Nature Reserve’

 

The designation means that it is now illegal to carry out any act that could be detrimental to the health and welfare of the mountains and its inhabitants. At present the area is used for mining activities which will either be relocated to outside of the Nature Reserve’s boundary or abolished. Any construction work taking place will suffer the same fate. Only traditional activities such as livestock grazing will be permitted with the understanding that they will not harm the environment.

 

The Tost Mountains have long been site to the world’s most comprehensive Snow Leopard research study. With over 20 of these majestic felines wearing GPS trackers, The Snow Leopard Trust along with the Snow Leopard Conservation Foundation and the Mongolian Academy of Sciences have been able to monitor their behaviour and ecology for over seven years. They have even been able to study the cubs in their nests for the first time.

 

We, along with The Snow Leopard Trust would like to express our gratitude and appreciation to the Mongolian parliament, and in particular to Members of Parliament Erdenchimeg Luvsan and Oyungerel Tsedevdamba, who led a Parliamentary delegation with 5 fellow members who championed the proposal.

 

We would like to congratulate the local government at Gurvantes and the provincial government of South Gobi – and most of all Tost’s local communities, who have championed the idea of protecting this important snow leopard habitat for many years.
