THE STORY:

UPDATE!

Oleg has found a suitable vehicle, a second-hand Toyota Land Cruiser in good condition.  You can see it in the photos below.  Please help Oleg buy this 4x4 before someone else gets it!

Oleg Loginov is a conservation pioneer.  He understands what needs to be done in his home country ofKazakhstan to protect the rare and endangered snow leopard from extinction. Despite the hardships of life in post-Soviet central Asia, he and his wife Irina have never lost sight of their passion for Kazakhstan’s wild nature, and their determination that their grandchildren will know a world with this magnificent big cat of the high mountains.


Recently the Loginov’s Snow Leopard Fund-Kazakhstan (SLF) and the Snow Leopard Conservancy joined forces for conservation action. Kazakh wildlife monitors have already captured a snow leopard via remote camera, and school officials have invited us to help local communities understand the ecology of the mountains and see the benefits of conservation. 
 

Now SLF needs your help. From their headquarters to their farthest study site is a round trip drive of almost 1500 miles, over unmaintained mountain roads. This winter, a year’s worth of snow fell in one month, and temperatures plunged to -58°F, causing schools and roads to be closed for two weeks. When it thawed, heavy trucks dug deep ruts into the slush; only 4x4 cars could use the roads.  With only a 1990 Nissan sedan, Oleg and his colleagues were unable to visit field sites, camera traps or schools. 

 

By donating toward a replacement vehicle for SLF, you are helping to ensure that these conservation heroes can continue to fight for the survival of snow leopards in Kazakhstan. The Nissan has served them well, thanks to Oleg’s TLC, but with over 212,000 miles on the engine, this car is no longer reliable for carrying on the important fieldwork necessary for saving snow leopards in Kazakstan’s remote and rugged terrain.
