How we are helping the wider community and world!

As part of our work with the wider community and world, Maple Class have adopted via the WWF, the elegant and elusive Snow Leopard. The elegant and well-camouflaged snow leopard is one of the world’s most elusive cats. Thinly spread across 12 countries in central Asia, it’s at home in high, rugged mountain landscapes. But habitat deterioration, habitat loss, poaching and climate change are now threatening their survival. Snow leopards are top predators in their environment, and their prey include mountain sheep and goats. Without the snow leopard, the ecological balance would be disrupted. By protecting the rare snow leopard we’re also helping to protect its whole environment! Keep your eye open for any fundraising events throughout the year.
