Snow leopards at Micke Grove Zoo

The Zoo’s strong commitment and successful history with snow leopards were both major factors in the Felid TAG’s decision to select a lively female snow leopard cub for transfer to the Micke Grove Zoo.

The Zoo has housed a total of 14 snow leopards from 1985 through 2012. Three litters (seven cubs total) have been born and raised at this zoo. Micke Grove Zoo has demonstrated their continued commitment to this species by developing a new master plan which includes an exciting new snow leopard exhibit as the principal focus of the upcoming "Asia Trek."

Micke Grove Zoo is dedicated to the preservation of snow leopards and their wild habitats for the health of the entire Himalayan ecosystem and for future generations to learn from. As we work towards finishing the construction on the new snow leopard exhibit, we also hope to expand our education, research, and breeding programs here at the Zoo.

Micke Grove Zoo also partners with non-profits organizations dedicated to saving snow leopards, a rare and endangered species found naturally in the high mountains of the Himalayas. Organizations such as the Snow Leopard Trust operate "adoption" and other programs to support snow leopard conservation projects. Together, we are dedicated to identifying ways people around the world can help protect this beautiful and majestic species. Click the links below to explore our partners.
