Snow leopard photographed in Nandadevi Biosphere Reserve

Snow leopard has been photographed using a camera trap near Malari in Nanda Devi National Park, Uttarakhand, India. The photograph was taken on 10th April 2011, said Mr.B.K.Gangte, the Director of the reserve. Though several indirect evidences and direct sightings were there in the past, this is the first photographic evidence. Conservation efforts in this region has helped snow leopards to freely roam in their once forgotten territory. Blue sheep or Bharal is the main prey base, which has increased in the recent years due to anti-poaching activities by the forest department.
