GOAL:Understanding impact of wild prey availability on snow leopard killing livestock.

The study is expected to result in some novel insights into the livestock predation behavior of the snow leopard and the population ecology of predator, prey and livestock system. The results will be published in reputed international peer-reviewed journals. Since they are closely collaborating with the Himachal Pradesh Forest Department, they hope that the findings of this project will also find their way into the management plans of some of these regions. They also work closely with the Central Government of India and other countries through our involvement in the Global Snow Leopard Ecosystem Protection (GSLEP).The expectation is that these findings will also help influence national and International policy for wildlife conservation in the snow leopard habitat of Central Asia.
