As part of Panthera's community-based conservation efforts, our team held a snow leopard monitoring training workshop last year with 24 local people from Yunta village. Villagers were taught in techniques including camera trap field instruction, and placed 16 Panthera cameras across 300 sq km of Suojia's snow leopard habitat, including one that captured this image.
