Storyboard Text

  • We're here outside to explore and learn about the snow leopards. Did you know the global population of the snow leopards is approx. 3,500 to 7,000 individuals. They belong to an endangered species and are highly in risk3.
  • Well, that's exactly the truth. That's why snow leopards population is decreasing.
  • I've heard snow leopards have beautiful and valuable fur, so some hunters are hunting and selling snow leopards fur and body parts illegally which puts the species population at risk.
  • Throughout the areas and other countries that snow leopards inhabit, there is a random distribution. Due to the sparse populations of their natural prey, snow leopards have large home ranges about several square miles3.
  • Yes, such as  habitat loss, poaching, and increasing conflict within the communities. On top of that, climate change has a huge impact to the snow leopards mountain home4.
  • Does snow leopards experience series of threats?
  • I don't see any snow leopard here...
  • Snow leopards use their physical features such as fur that allow them to hide easily from their predators7. On the other hand, snow leopard have very good eyesight which allows them to spot their preys clearly.
  • Most of snow leopards are not aggressive in nature; however, when they are, they uses their claws and teeth to protect themselves. Also, in nature, snow leopards are secretive and difficult to spot. As a result, it decreases their chances of confronting predator as well7.
  • How does the snow leopard defend themselves? 
  • To transect snow leopards may vary in length from a few hundred yards to a mile or more. Since snow leopards are belong to endangered species, it is difficult for local people to locate them and to transect them promptly. 
  • Okay students, do you see any pugmarks?
  • These pugmarks belong to snow leopards. According to the researchers, snow leopards leave enough evidence to indicate their presence as they travel to their home ranges.
  • Yes, sort of. 
  • It's getting cold now I think we should go back and continue the rest of our discussion at the science center.
  • OMG! Is that really a snow leopard? Should I follow him?
  • Everyone's return safely at the science center except Melissa.
