If you love Snow Leopards and want to wear something special sunglasses to bring attention to International Snow Leopard Day October 23, these are the Purr-fect look.
Australian company Valley Eyewear called this color Snow Leopard and it fits perfectly. White/grey background with flecks of black, creme and grey make this a purr-fect match for those who want to draw attention to this endangered species.
Snow Leopards are an endangered species with an estimated 4,500-7,500 left in the world. They are increasingly being driven from their habitats due to growth, mining and climate change. In addition they are being poached. Snow Leopard bones are being used in replacement for tiger bones in eastern medicine. For those who still wear fur, snow leopards coats are still in demand. Currently they reside in 12 Asian countries.
Because snow leopards live in the higher altitude snow and mountain systems, their coloring blends well with the rocks and snow. Excellent camouflage.
