Spirit of the Mountain

Mongolia is home to 500-1000 snow leopards, the second largest population in the world. WWF works for the conservation of snow leopards in the Altai-Sayan ecoregion since 1998. This film was made to encourage local herdsmen to enforce spiritual values and reduce the pressure from retaliation hunting. All footage used in the film was collected in the wild through camera traps installed in the Jargalant Khairkhan Mountain, Khovd province, Western Mongolia.
