Snow leopard video sent in to Camera Trap 2017 contest

4 December 2017

Tunkinsky National Park and the Snow Leopard Foundation are taking part in the Camera Trap 2017 national contest. They have sent in videos with snow leopards, Manchurian wapitis, wild goats and roe deer recorded in the Republic of Buryatia.


The project is designed to showcase modern technologies, including cameras (camera traps), and encourage their use in research and protection of wildlife and rare species. Camera Trap 2017 is the third contest, which is timed to coincide with Russia’s Year of the Environment this time.


Dmitry Medvedev, President of the Snow Leopard Foundation, said that the contest made it possible to show unique videos of wild animals, including such rare and solitary species as snow leopards.


“Camera traps have made the study of wildlife far more informative and colourful, and its protection more efficient,” Mr Medvedev said.


Camera Trap 2017 is sponsored by the Amur Tiger Centre, the Far Eastern Leopards autonomous non-profit organisation and the State Darwin Museum.
