Does global warming have an effect on the snow leopard?



  1. 0 Votes

    Global warming threatens snow leopards by melting snow at lower elevations and forcing leopards to move further up mountain slopes in search of appropriate living habitats. At these higher elevations, there is less vegetation for the leopards’ herbivorous prey to feed on. Thus, global warming endangers the leopards by indirectly removing their food source.

    Global warming is affecting many animals such as the snow leopard. As global warming increases temperatures, the snow line on mountains move further up. Snow leopards typically have a range between the location of where the tree line stops and the snow line on mountains begins. So global warming is forcing snow leopards to move further up the mountain. Further up the mountain there is less vegetation which the prey of the snow leopard feeds on, so their food source becomes less abundant as they move up the mountain.
