Wild Brown Bear Family Filmed

The mountain wilderness of Sarychat Ertash, in Kyrgyzstan’s majestic Tian Shan mountains, is home to a rich and diverse fauna, which includes the endangered snow leopard, but also brown bears, lynx, and many other species.

One of our research cameras – deployed in the area to catch glimpses of the elusive snow leopard – recently captured amazing footage of a brown bear mother and her cubs. Enjoy!
