Abstract

Following a trip to the West Coast Game Park Safari in Bandon, OR, I describe my experiences interacting with the snow leopard cub and her caretaker. Snow leopards are an endangered species, and their exact numbers are unknown due their elusiveness and difficult-to-navigate habitat in the Himalayan Mountains. Despite their appearances in Nalapese folklore and their presence in various forms of our cultural media, they still face survival challenges. However, there is hope for the snow leopards in the form of research, outreach, and conservation efforts by various organizations.
