Seattle, WA (PressExposure) August 27, 2009 -- Wild snow leopards are getting help from another kind of snow leopard: the new Mac OS X. Apple Specialists Marketing Corp, a trade organization of over 100 independently owned Apple Specialist dealers, is gearing up for the launch of the new Apple operating system, dubbed âSnow Leopard,â by helping to raise money for snow leopards in the wild.
Customers who come in to purchase the new OS from participating Apple Specialists will also have the chance to make a donation to the Snow Leopard Trust, or purchase a snow leopard cub adoption kit at a specially-reduced price. A list of participating Apple Specialist locations can be found at [http://www.applespecialist.com/adoptions].
âThis is an amazing opportunity to raise awareness for the plight of the endangered snow leopard,â said Brad Rutherford, the Snow Leopard Trustâs Executive Director, âWe really enjoy working with Apple Specialists, theyâre a great team with great enthusiasm. This joint promotion with the Apple Specialists will give people the story behind the name and show them why the snow leopard on their Mac OS X software is such an amazing big cat.â
There are as few as 3,500 snow leopards left in the wild throughout Central Asia. The Snow Leopard Trust, based out of Seattle, is the world leader in snow leopard research and conservation. The cub adoptions are just one way to support their work, which includes studying snow leopards and working to end snow leopard poaching. To learn more, go to http://www.snowleopard.org.
