The government of Bhutan, along with the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), conducted a survey to trap a rare species of leopard in Wangchuck Centennial Park, Bhutan, in Oct-Nov last year.

Snow leopards are listed as “endangered” by the International Union for Conservation of Nature as its population has fallen by almost 20 percent in the past decade, the Telegraph reported.

The researchers captured over 10,000 images of rarely seen snow leopards by placing four hidden cameras in the national park.

Spread over an area of 4,914 square km, Wangchuck Centennial Park is home to a large number of wild animals including the Bengal tiger, snow leopard, wolf and Himalayan black bear.
