A snow leopard reservation center was set up at Mount Qomolangma National Nature Conservatory Administration Bureau on May 6th. Experts were invited to investigate local snow leopard population to provide data support to the protection of snow leopard, Xinhua reported.
Snow leopard is a grade-one protected animal. All year round they live near the snow line and in the snow field, known as “king of the snow mountain“. They habitually spend their daily time in stone cliffs with vigilance, by which they are dubbed “plateau hermit”.
