Enjoy Panthera's pic of the day of two beautiful snow leopards, likely mother and cub, taken last December in Soujia, China. 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. In cooperation with our partner, Shan Shui, these villagers have been checking the cameras every month to replace batteries and download images, which provide critical data on the number and behavior of local snow leopards, allowing Panthera and our partners to develop better conservation initiatives on behalf of 'Asia's Mountain Ghost.'

Enjoy our precious photo of the day of a female cougar known as F59 monitored through Panthera’s Teton Cougar Project! F59 was one of five kittens born to F51 in her first litter and serves as a living legacy to her mother, who was recently killed by a local male cougar while defending her newest two kittens. Yesterday, our scientists reported that these two 7 month old kittens are alive and traveling together. Stay tuned for news on these kittens and other cougars monitored through the TCP. See incredible video footage and read about the incredible life and legacy of F51
