Снежный барс, или ирбис занесен в Красный список МСОП (2000) как «находящийся под угрозой исчезновения» (высшая охранная категория EN C2A). В Красной книге Российской Федерации (2001) он значится как «находящийся под угрозой исчезновения вид на пределе ареала» (1 категория).

Ирбис принадлежит к слабо изученным видам. Его ареал в России составляет 2-3 % современного мирового ареала, так же как и численность составляет около 2 % от общей численности вида.

Среди крупных кошачьих ирбис - единственный постоянный обитатель высокогорий, олицетворяет собой величественный, загадочный и суровый мир гор Центральной Азии. Занимая верхний трофический уровень в экосистемах, он может служить своего рода видом-флагманом в отношении сохранения всего животного мира центрально-азиатских высокогорий. Выживание этой редкой кошки в сильно нарушенных и деградирующих горных экосистемах крайне затруднительно или невозможно, соответственно сохранение жизнеспособных популяций ирбиса неизбежно сопряжено с эффективной охраной среды его обитания в целом.

В силу труднодоступности местообитаний и низкой плотности вида, до сих пор слабо исследованными остаются такие важнейшие аспекты биологии ирбиса, как структура ареала, способность к расселению, сезонные перемещения, питание и охотничье поведение (в частности, степень пищевой специализации, в том числе, состав и доля в добыче домашних животных), структура популяций, численность, размеры индивидуальных участков, суточный ход и многие другие, что затрудняет разработку адекватных мер охраны. Это касается всего ареала вида и в особенности российской его части.
