Adopt a Snow Leopard: Ariun

Covid-19 Adoption Announcement: In light of the recent government lockdown, we are unable to post adaptation packs ordered after Monday, 23 March 2020. An e-copy of your adoption pack content will be emailed to you. The sketch (and toy) will be sent at a later date. Please accept our apologies and we hope you understand under these difficult circumstances.

Ariun, meaning ‘Pure’ in Mongolian, is one of a diminishing number of endangered snow leopards roaming the Tost and Toson Bumba Mountains in Mongolia. Our ambassador for the elusive snow leopard, Ariun symbolises the beautiful, nomadic spirit of these amazing mountain cats.

Your adoption will help fund vital research and community outreach programmes working to create a wider understanding of the species and supporting local people through compensation and commercial craft schemes.

As human populations grow, these beautiful cats need more support. By adopting Ariun, you are helping to ensure a safe and sustainable future for the snow leopard in the wild.

This special adoption now comes with the choice of adding a handmade snow leopard toy to your pack. Each toy is individually and lovingly made by Little Ndaba, a women’s community group in Zambia that helps provide alternative incomes to those living close to wildlife. Click here to read more about Little Ndaba
