The Snow Leopard Trust is the largest and oldest organization working solely to protect the endangered snow leopard (''Panthera uncia'') and its habitat in 12 countries of Central Asia. The Trust is a non-profit organization with its headquarters in Seattle, Washington. The present total population of snow leopards in the wild is estimated at between 3,920 and 6,390.
== History ==
The Trust was founded in 1981 by Helen Elaine Freeman (March 10, 1932 – September 20, 2007). Working as a volunteer at Seattle's Woodland Park Zoo, Freeman became fascinated with the snow leopards there and learnt about their endangered plight. She later joined the staff of the Zoo and was motivated to set up the Trust to protect the snow leopard in the wild, and its habitat. She also began the Trust’s philosophy of helping the people sharing the snow leopard’s habitat improve their standard of living in exchange for protecting the animal.〔Peterson, Alison J. "Helen E.
