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.

Video: Lost in Kyrgyzstan

While only two minutes in length, this video is quite simply mesmerizing. It takes us to Kyrgyzstan to explore some of the beautiful landscapes that are found there. Like other areas of Central Asia, this region is home to nomadic people who wander the vast steppe lands much the way their forefathers did. It is also a place of incredible beauty that is captured elegantly in this all-too brief clip. I hope you enjoy it as much as do.
