In the territory of the last snow leopards

Tien Shan, Kyrgyzstan

Hobby biologists support a research project with their holidays. Organizer is the sustainable travel provider Biosphere. For the price of a luxury trip, nature lovers take part in a two-week expedition and are provided with food and impressions. The project is supported by a four-person task force of the German Nature Conservation Association. Already in 1999, the organization launched the team to tackle poachers in the area. Since then, the Kyrgyz people have set up camera traps, roaming the mountains in search of clues to the rare animals and their hunters.
