Video: Snow Leopard Mother and Cub

Camera trap catches a wild snow leopard mother and her young cub on an excursion in Kyrgyzstan's Sarychat Ertash reserve.

A remote-sensor camera trap caught rare footage of a snow leopard mother and her cub in Sarychat Ertash State Nature Reserve, Kyrgyzstan.

Worldwide, there may be as few as 4,000 wild snow leopards left. The mountainous Kyrgyz Republic is a stronghold for the endangered cat, and a pioneer in its conservation.

We’re grateful to the State Agency for Environment Protection & Forestry of the Kyrgyz Republic for their leadership on snow leopard research and conservation, and to our partners and donors for their tremendous support.
