The amazingly successful Snow Leopard Trust GPS collar project in Mongolia has another female to follow, joining young Zaraa. So far all the other cats that have been collared are males. This female is 36 kg and 115 cm in body length with a lovely 98 cm long tail and believed to be between 4 and 6 years old.

Make sure you follow this wonderful project tracking the footsteps of  this exclusive group of wild snow leopards over vast territory in the remote mountain snow leopard habitat of Mongolia. This project has been going for two years and continues to collect important snow leopard facts to help with community conservation programs of benefit to the local people as well as the long term survival of the cats.  Read all about it on the Trust’s Blog.
