First Snow Leopard Collared in Chitral Gol

On 17 November, a female snow leopard was captured and collared in Chitral Gol National Park, in northern Pakistan. In the first of its kind study, the 35 kg (78 pound) leopard was fitted with a GPS-Satellite collar that will provide researchers with an unprecedented amount of precise data on snow leopard movements and habitat use. The collar contains a GPS which will calculate the cat’s exact position several times each day and then uplink the data via the Argos satellite system and back to the researchers by email.

Snow Leopard conservationist Shafqat Hussain in Pakistan wins a 2006 Associate Rolex Awards for Enterprise
Wednesday 1 November 2006

Shafqat Hussain, presently PhD fellow at Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies, won this prestigious Associate Rolex Awards for Enterprise late October 2006. He has designed a snow leopard conservation project that combines surveys and research, and conservation awareness programmes for local communities using theatre and radio stations. In addition he has created a pilot insurance scheme to reduce the impact on farmers of livestock predation by snow leopards. He also fostered the development of a range of ecotourism activities such as Snow Leopard Treks, which now generates further income for the insurance fund. Read more detailed information about this project on the Rolex Awards website. Bravo Shafqat!
