In his tireless efforts to save the mysterious and endangered snow leopard, Dr. Rodney Jackson spends six months each year in Central Asia’s high mountains, tracking the cats over dangerous terrain by foot, truck, horse and even camel. Jackson helped lead an international team in the first-ever range-wide genetic assessment of snow leopards, and as their classification has improved from endangered to vulnerable, he continues to create solutions to sustain their populations.
