Critter Cams

Author: Hugh Bollinger/Sunday, November 9, 2014/Categories: natural history, video, sustainability, environment

Camera traps, often called "critter cams", are very useful tools to quietly monitor wildlife and their behavior. They can be deployed in any location even the most remote spots on Earth, such as the  Wakhan Corridor  in NE Afghanistan near the border of China and Tajikistan. A camera tray installed there has just been observed the existence of a small population of snow leopards, one of the rarest big cats in the world.

It is nice seeing wildlife conservation happening in a region more known for less positive activities.
