Conservation of Snow Leopard Habitat

A Snow Leopard Research Center is going to be constructed in Kibber in Lahaul and Spiti district of Himacal Pradesh, India. The Snow Leopard population in the Western Himalayas are distributed in the Greater Himalayas and the Trans Himalayas (rainshadow area beyond the Greater Himalayas consisting of rugged mountains and steppe treeless desert landscape), with most of its population distributed in the latter.

Snow leopards, and its associated prey species share their habitat with pheasants in the moist temperate forests of Greater Himalayas.
