More from Gansu

Dear All,

The field season earlier this year was a huge success, with new areas surveyed in Gansu (as well as Xinjiang and Tibet). The sites in west Gansu were particularly busy with snow leopard sign and we were rewarded with a photo with no fewer than three apparently adult animals walking together (the third animal is just visible on the far left).

These are probably an adult female with her adolescent offspring, but this is an unusual shot. Shame the photo quality wasn't better, but oh well.

You might also enjoy the following video we shot on a remote camera in Taxkurgan in Xinjiang.
