More than 30 experts, scholars and officials from Mongolia's environmental protection departments, the World Environment Foundation, the Snow Leopard Conservation Foundation and other institutes discussed conservation measures and shared experience from other countries.

Experts said that, due to habitat loss, poaching, conflicts with humans and other reasons in recent years, the snow leopard had been listed as endangered species.

Snow leopards are targeted by hunters for its beautiful fur. Mongolia's southern Gobi region is implementing a project to protect the species. Snow Leopard is mainly distributed in China's Xinjiang region, Mongolia and other countries in the Central Asia plateau.
