Tien Shan snow leopard expedition (June/July/August)

Kyrgyzstan has declared a state of emergency and is in lockdown.

At the same time the majority citizen scientists have already opted to defer to Tien Shan 2021 (12 – 24 July or 26 July – 7 August 2021) or to other expeditions in 2021.

Our community monitoring group (see below), set up by Biosphere Expeditions with help from the Nando & Elsa Peretti Foundation over the last few years, is planning as we speak to continue monitoring for snow leopards. Details about their plans (and a call for donations to enable this) are on our coronavirus appeal page. So we will continue the project and collect data as much and whenever possible, but, regrettably, it is now highly unlikely that there will be a citizen science element to the project in 2020.
