Video: Climbing Mountains to Save Snow Leopards in Kyrgyzstan

The snow leopard is one of the most endangered animals on the planet, with less than 4000 believed to still exist in the wild. But as you’ll see in this video, efforts are being made to protect these amazing big cats which roam the Himalaya and other high mountains of Central Asia. In this clip, we travel along with conservationists in Kyrgyzstan and witness first-hand their efforts to save these beautiful animals from poachers.

You’ll also get a rare glimpse of the leopards themselves thanks to camera traps strategically placed in the mountains.
