About the Program

On June, 4th, ABC News Nightline, aired an exclusive segment on Panthera’s Snow Leopard Program in Mongolia. Watch the Nightline video to see Panthera's Snow Leopard Program Executive Director, Dr. Tom McCarthy, track and collar a male snow leopard named 'Aztai' in Mongolia's Tost Mountains.

Learn how GPS collars help Panthera's scientists better conserve the elusive snow leopard by providing data about their range, behavior, and how they raise their young. Included in the segment is the first ever footage of a snow leopard mother and her cubs in a den in Mongolia taken by Panthera and the Snow Leopard Trust, and learn why the future of 'Asia's Mountain Ghost' remains precarious today and what Panthera is doing to conserve these secretive cats.

Read about this snow leopard conservation project in Mongolia - the longest and largest study of snow leopards ever undertaken in the country by Panthera and the Snow Leopard Trust.
