The Snow Leopard is known for its elusive nature and wildlife groups have been concerned for decades about their dwindling numbers. Yet there is some good news - the species is, it seems, flourishing in one remote part of Afghanistan. The war torn country is home to a vigorous population of snow leopards.
The World Conservation Society recently laid a number of camera traps in the Wakhan Corridor. This mountainous area is a long panhandle in the north east of the country and the camera traps captured snow leopards on film in sixteen places.
