In the high altitudes of Central Asia lives the mysterious “Ghost Of The Mountains”, the snow leopard. These elusive creatures inhabit the rough terrain between where the tree line stops and the snow line begins on the mountains. With temperatures rising due to climate change the snow lines recede more causing the snow leopards to move further up the mountain slopes. As they are forced to inhabit higher elevations, the vegetation becomes more scarce, which means that the herbivores that snow leopards prey upon become more limited in supply putting the leopards in the position of having trouble finding enough food. This is one of the ways in which this beautiful creature’s existence is being threatened.
