An Honored Guest at Treat House: Sibylle Noras

Treat House had the distinct honor to host Sibylle Noras during her visit to Seattle.  She is well known for her Snow Leopard blog and travels.  You can find more info about Sibylle and her blog below:

Hi, my name’s Sibylle Noras and I live in Melbourne, Australia. I’ve been supporting snow leopard conservation for years and in the 1990′s I worked on an Earthwatch Snow Leopard conservation project in the Himalayas of Ladakh, India. I spent three weeks tracking a snow leopard. Sadly I never saw her, but I’m sure she saw me. The closest I came was to find snow leopard scat (poo) – that was an exciting day!

Recently I returned from a snow leopard habitat research project in Russia and you can read the “Diary  Searching for Russia’s Last Snow Leopards” here.

When not working on snow leopard conservation advocacy I run a small business with two self contained holiday houses providing accommodation (vacation rentals). One is the beautiful Treetops at Wye River, on Australia’s magnificent Great Ocean Road. The other is a stylish house called Alto, accommodation Richmond on the edge of downtown Melbourne city. We welcome visitors from all over the world.

Together with many wonderful people from all over the globe this website and blog aims to bring news about endangered snow leopards to as many people world wide as possible.  We can make a difference to the future of this endangered cat and the often poor villagers and herders who share its remote habitat. Help save a snow leopard today.


“Saving Snow Leopards” website donated this beautiful limited edition print by British wildlife artist, Martin Aveling, to the Australian Himalayan Foundation fundraising dinner. It raised $1500! Well done to all bidders.

Snow leopards live in one of the most extreme places and climates on earth, it is a beautiful testament to the resilience of animals. Let’s all help to give them a future in the wild.
