Panthera’s Snow Leopard Scientist Approaches Den With Camera

Orjan Johansson, Panthera’s Snow Leopard Field Scientist and Ph.D. student, approaches a snow leopard den using a camera fixed to an extended pole. He was about to film the first known video of a snow leopard mother and cub in a natal den in Mongolia’s Tost Mountains all while filming from a safe distance. Because of the snow leopard’s secretive and elusive nature, coupled with the extreme and treacherous landscape which they inhabit, dens have been extremely difficult to locate. This is a tremendous discovery and provides invaluable insight into the life story of the snow leopard.
