This is the first fund among the CIS countries for the reintroduction of the snow leopard population in all 13 countries of the habitat. The main aim is the conservation, rehabilitation and breeding of the snow leopard in a sanctuary and subsequent reintroduction in natural habitats.
Engagement and education of the public in snow leopard conservation is critical to the survival of this species, so Mr. Aliyev also included a visitor education center and vista points where people can observe the snow leopards from a safe distance. The ultimate goal of the project is a captive breeding program which allows for adaptation to natural conditions of Kazakhstan and successful subsequent reintroduction into natural habitats.
Snow leopard is the symbol of independent country of Kazakhstan. Snow leopard is the largest member of the cat family, which is incorporated in the Red List of the International Nature Preservation Union, including National Red Books of all 12 countries of the area of cat family distribution – Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Tadzhikistan, Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, Nepal, Butane, China, Mongolia and Russia.
According to the report of the Zoology Institute of the Ministry of Education and Science, only 110-130 Snow Leopards inhabited Kazakhstan in 2014. In less than quarter-century the population of these animals in Kazakhstan reduced by over 40%. Therefore, Mr. Aliyev decided to dedicate his efforts to the conservation of the habitats and population levels of these magnificent animals.
In 2021 on the eve of the 30th anniversary of the independence of Kazakhstan and in honor of the International Snow Leopard Day, Snow Leopard Foundation supported the First Ecological play for children "Adventures of the Snow Leopard", which took place in Almaty.
