By Hayes Witherow and Gabriel Wright Sedge The snow leopard is an endangered species of cat that lives in the tundra in northern Asia. It is endangered because of illegal poaching, fur trade, and is used for medicine. About 2,000 of these cats are killed each year for these reasons. There are about 6,000 snow leopards left in the wild and it is important to help save them. Habitat The snow leopard's habitat is in the arctic tundra. Their habitat covers about 2,000,000 square kilometers, about the size of Mexico, despite their sparse population. The snow leopard is always moving, and it has no permanent home, but it generally lives in rugged mountain ranges, between 3,000 and 4,500 meters above sea level. Wolf The snow leopard is a nessecary consumer in the tundra. It is important to keep this animal out of danger. Without it, the population of primary consumers, like mountain goats, would increase over their carrying capacity. This way, many producers in the tundra, unique to this community, would get consumed and would be wiped out, throwing off the environmental balance in the tundra. Snow leopards are an essential part to the Asian tundra, and it is imporatant to help save them.
