Today's episode is part 2 of 2 episodes with Dr. Rodney Jackson of the Snow Leopard Conservancy. If you have not yet listened to Part 1, I highly recommend it. In Part 1 Rodney talked about his background and how the Snow Leopard Conservancy came to be. You can find Part 1 here: http://beprovidedconservationradio.libsyn.com/beprovided-conservation-radio.

In this episode I start off the conversation with the question, "what challenges are snow leopards facing today?" We continue the conversation with how the Snow Leopard Conservancy

addresses these challenges. As always, we end the conversation with me asking, "What gives you hope?" So please listen in to hear Rodney's answer. 

We are also happy to note that the Snow Leopard Conservancy was awarded the Darwin Initiative in May 2018. SLC was one of 52 projects who will be awarded financial support to enhance biodiversity and drive change to protect the planet's natural environment. So a big CONGRATULATIONS to the Snow Leopard Conservancy and thank you for all the work you do with the beautiful elusive snow leopards and conservation.
