Snow Leopards Tagged And Collared For Research In Afghanistan

| Filed under: Science!EndangeredWildlifeLeopard

Snow leopards are one of the most endangered species in the world but conservationists took up efforts to put an end to their decline.

Funded by National Geographic, researchers teamed with Afghan doctors to tag and release two snow leopards in the Afghan mountains.

The two felines were collared as the conservationists took measurements to learn how the leopards survived.

They were released and each traveled over 70 miles through the Hindu Kush mountains!

Poachers, environment destruction and more have dwindle their numbers but researchers hope their findings can help the snow leopard.

Let's hope so! We don't want to say goodbye to this majestic creatures!
