Caucasian Leopard caught on video

The first ever camera-trap footage of a Caucasian Leopard in Armenia is being hailed as a breakthrough by the international conservation community. The video was shot in the Caucasus Wildlife Refuge and shows, tantalisingly, just the tail of a leopard. Since 2010 World Land Trust (WLT) has been supporting conservation efforts to save the Caucasian Leopard in Armenia. Enjoy this historic video and please donate to our Caucasian Leopard special appeal.

In a remote and beautiful corner of the Cerro Prieto-Cerro La Luz reserve in Mexico's Sierra Gorda, Roberto Pedraza came across this fabulous creature, a Mexican endemic and an endangered species. "In a grassy meadow - 2,300 metres above sea level - near a full rushing creek, we found a beautiful and fat salamander (Pseudoerycea cephalica), a very willing model and eager to have her picture taken." The reserve was purchased by Grupo Ecológico Sierra Gorda with financial support from WLT. As a result, loggers are no longer a threat and the damp, shadowy forest habitat that the salamander needs to survive is now protected.
