Sarychat-Ertash State Nature Reserve

The Snow Leopard Trust has reported that Kyrgyzstan’s Prime Minister, Jantoro Satybaldiev, has signed a decree expanding the Sarychat-Ertash State Nature Reserve, the country’s most important snow leopard habitat, by 150 square kilometres.

A State Certificate of the Reserve showing the protected area’s exact borders will soon be issued and neither mining nor hunting will be allowed within those borders.
