Camera Traps find evidence of the elusive leopard in Kargil.
The high altitude areas of India’s north-eastern states are a nature lover’s paradise but many of the area remain unexplored because of the difficult terrain. It is therefore no wonder that some wild creatures still remain hidden in the vast landscape of these inaccessible lands. WWF-India recently discovered one such creature that was never before reported to be found in India – the rare black Pika.
Aishwarya Maheshwari has a job to envy. As the Senior Project Officer with WWF-India’s Snow Leopard Project in Kargil region of Jammu and Kashmir, he not only gets to spend much of his time in one of the most beautiful places in the world, but can also catch a glimpse of wild species not often seen or heard. On one such lucky expedition he chanced upon a pair of brown bears, mother and son searching for food and roaming around in the wilderness of the Trans-Himalayan region.
