Sculpture of snow leopard to appear in Bishkek

The snow leopard sculpture will be opened today, on August 21, in Bishkek on the Youth Alley (near the Philharmonic). The event is held within the framework of the International Forum, which will be held in the capital of Kyrgyzstan on August 23-25.

As the Secretariat on the conservation of the snow leopard and its ecosystems told 24.kg news agency, one of the creative groups made the sculpture of metal nuts (real size of an animal).

It is expected that the event will bring together the leaders and representatives of the governments of the twelve countries of the Red Book List species habitat, as well as other interested countries — leaders of international and donor agencies, environmental and scientific organizations.

The International Forum aims to further strengthen the efforts of several countries to protect the snow leopard and to increase international support for the plan to provide the leopard with 20 landscapes by 2020.
