[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The snow leopard (Panthera uncia) is a threatened species whose pelts command a very high price in the fur market. During the 1960s total population went down to 1000 animals, but has recovered meanwhile to more than 6000 animals.

Snow leopards are hard to track down in the wild. The first close-up footage captured by a human (as opposed to remote cameras) was taken in 2006, for the TV series Planet Earth; the animals were filmed in the Northern Areas of Pakistan. The WWF of Pakistan plans to conserve the species in Khunjerab National Park, which provides a natural habitat for the snow leopard.

Superb animal, Radu. Poza ii excelenta (great POV and moment - in special) si titlul simpatic. E un mare pacat si o nedreptate ce s-a intamplat cu aceste animale.
Bravo si TFS
