Zoo Partners

Natural Partnerships Program

Many zoos are active supporters of wildlife conservation, committed to protecting wild species and their natural habitats.

The Snow Leopard Trust’s Natural Partnerships Program (NPP) connects zoos around the world and offers them the unique opportunity to protect endangered snow leopards.  Through NPP, zoos get directly involved and make powerful contributions to the highest priority in-situ conservation and research programs in snow leopard range countries.

Join our Natural Partnership Program today, and get your zoo involved as a leader in snow leopard conservation. Naturally, there are so many ways to help including:

Turn inspiration into action! Over 160 zoos worldwide have snow leopards on exhibit, with 71 zoos exhibiting snow leopards in Europe and 68 zoos in North America.

Currently over 70 zoos are participating in the Snow Leopard Trust’s Natural Partnerships Program. Millions of individuals watch these snow leopards in awe and amazement every year. The Natural Partnerships Program bridges these inspiring moments with powerful contributions to snow leopard conservation in the field.  Imagine the impact on snow leopard conservation if all 160 zoos joined together to support the Snow Leopard Trust conservation, education and research efforts.  What a huge difference each zoo makes.

We are proud to partner with the following zoos:
