Fabulous post kudos to wangchuk and the Bhutan Foudation for raising aweness and caring! There is so little footage or even photos of snow leopards that this is simply fanstastic

Beautiful cats Love the way they were looking at the light Sad the Yak died but thats human nature Animals only kill to eat unlike humans that kill and torture for the pleasure of it

We need to figure out a way for humans and wild animals to live together or else the animals are doomed.

The camera project is a wonderful way to save snow leopards. Wangchuk is the cutest yak herder I have ever seen!

I can appreciate the biological interest in this great video, but I am concerned that now they will be hunted and lauded as the next big aphrodisiac in someone's soup. It is past conservation now, it is down to preservation of natural areas.

Priceless video. Hope they can learn to co-exist. Hope this young yak herder becomes a leader.
