Panthera’s Snow Leopard Selfie Featured on Live Science


Human ‘selfies’ are all the rage this year (photos of oneself, taken by oneself), and recently Live Science gave a nod to the ‘Best Wild Animal Selfies’ in a new photo gallery published here. Among the ‘best wild animal selfies’ is this great camera trap photo taken through the Panthera-Fauna & Flora International snow leopard conservation project carried out in Tajikistan.

Today, Tajikistan is home to over 100,000 km² of high-value snow leopard habitat and a significant population of snow leopards, estimated to be as many as 300 individuals.
