I am doing a project for school and I need to know how snow leopards get their water and what they use as shelter. I am in fourth grade and think snow leopards are really cool! I have found many other things about snow leopards like they use their nasal cavity to warm the air before it goes to their lungs. Please help me answer these questions if you can.


We get so many letters from kids. If we tried to answer them all we wouldn’t have any time left for snow leopards. But we realize that kids are the future, and if we want the future to have snow leopards in it, we have to teach kids everything we drawing of a Nepali child know about these beautiful cats. We believe that kids will then come to appreciate snow leopards and work to preserve them.

That is why we have created this special section of our website, “Snow Leopards for Kids.” In it you will find answers to your questions about snow leopards. You will find photos and videos of snow leopards. You will also find suggestions for things you can do to help save snow leopards. We are also working on a section of “snow leopardy” things to do that are just, plain fun.

If you have questions that we haven’t answered, or if you have suggestions for things you would like to see in this section, contact us at Snow Leopards for Kids.
