The winners of the X media Wildlife Festival «My Snow Leopard» have been determined

In the Sayan Mountains , the snow leopard is an invisible path
On soft paws he makes his way to the stream…
A beautiful beast! It is necessary to save it!
I'm learning more about him every year
And on a hot summer day, in winter on a frosty night
Suddenly, silvery shadows will flash!..
A ferocious predator, but what a graceful one he is!
A big cat, but his character is cool!
It is mentioned in the school curriculum,
When I grow up, I will contribute to his salvation!
I so want to live freely in Sayan
A beautiful snow leopard, a rare snow leopard!
Eva Kolodkina, "Snow Leopard"

The Wildlife Festival "My Snow Leopard" was established in 2013 by the State Natural Biosphere Reserve "Sayano-Shushensky" and the State Nature Reserve "Khakassky" with the support of the Khakass Republican branch of the All-Russian Public Organization "Russian Geographical Society".

"My Snow Leopard" is a cultural ecological and educational event. The festival aims to unite adults and children from different countries through creativity in a common effort to preserve the rarest and most mysterious wild cat of our planet – the snow leopard. Using the example of the snow leopard to draw public attention to the problem of endangered and rare species and to form a responsible and careful attitude towards nature in general among the population. This year the Festival is being held for the 10th time!

The anniversary festival "My Snow Leopard" received dozens and hundreds of works in almost all categories of the competition. Traditionally, the most popular nomination was "Drawing".

The geography of the participants is quite wide and includes not only the Krasnoyarsk Territory and the neighboring Republic of Khakassia, but also the Novosibirsk, Kemerovo, Tomsk regions, Stavropol and Krasnodar Territories.
