Photos of Wild Snow Leopard Cubs!

The photos and video from Anu and Lasya’s den sites are in! We have never before encountered wild snow leopard cubs, and we are thrilled to share our experience with you. You can check out our YouTube channel to see live footage of the den visits!

Additional details on the event can be found here.

This long-term snow leopard study in Mongolia’s South Gobi is a joint project with Snow Leopard Trust, Snow Leopard Conservation Fund, and Panthera, and is in cooperation with the Mongolia Ministry of Nature, Environment and Tourism and the Mongolia Academy of Sciences.

The birth of thes beautiful SL cubs in remote frigid environments in Mongolia brings us hope that planet earth is still going to stay for some time. The efforts of the researchers for finding these charming cats in the wild are quite awesome.
