Photo of the Day

Steve Winter/National Geographic

Our photo of the day is a camera trap photo of a snow leopard with a beautiful view of the Kharlung Mountain Ridge in India. Although snow leopards live in harsh conditions, they are well adapted to their environment. Their small rounded ears, for example, minimize heat loss.

Learn more neat facts about the snow leopard and how Panthera is working to conserve this magnificent species through the Snow Leopard Conservation Program.
