  • SNOW LEOPARD OF AFGHANISTAN

ABOUT THE SHOW

Afghanistan, one of the most dangerous places on earth, is also home to a population of endangered and elusive snow leopards.  These big cats are a species under constant threat from poachers and farmers who fear that the leopards are attacking their livestock. But experts cannot protect them without knowing more about them. Now, Nat Geo Wild joins the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) and an international team of experts, including expert big cat tracker Boone Smith, as they set out on a mission in the middle of a war zone: to find, capture and collar a snow leopard, and release it back into the wild.  With GPS to track the big cats’ location, and WCS camera traps already in place, if successful, the expedition will offer a deeper understanding of the rare and beautiful species.
