WCS Releases Rare Photograph of Mother and Cub

snow leopard and cub afghanistan

WCS – Photographing snow leopards with remote cameras in Afghanistan is hard, which is why a team of WCS conservationists was delighted to take this recent image from a craggy peak in Afghanistan’s Sarkund Valley. This is the first image of a mother and cub taken since WCS began work in the region. WCS has been conserving wildlife and improving local livelihoods in Afghanistan since 2006 with support from the U.S. Agency for International Development.
