This video was taken in August 2010 at the Tost Mountain study area in South Gobi, Mongolia where Panthera and the Snow Leopard Trust are collaborating on the first ever long-term study of snow leopards. This film clip is actually 61 images taken about a half second apart by one of our remote automated cameras. We believe it is a mother and her nearly grown cubs. In the same region, the joint projects has 8 snow leopards now fitted with GPS-satellite collars and are tracking their movements to better understand and conserve them.
