PRLog (Press Release) - Sep. 19, 2012 - Last month, Biosphere Expeditions returned from another successful wildlife conservation project in the Altai Mountains in Asia with some very exciting findings.

Biosphere Expeditions is an international not-for-profit organisation which co-ordinates regular wildlife conservation projects where volunteers from around the globe can take part – enabling them to see parts of the world they might not otherwise be able to while giving something back.

Their latest expedition to the Altai Mountains is primarily focused on gathering information about the endangered snow leopard however this year they have made a rather significant discovery. By laying camera traps and tracking scrapes, they have found that the Pallas Cat climbs to much higher altitudes than previously thought.

This information will enable local conservation groups such as WWF Russia and Arkhar NGO to gain a better understanding of the behaviours of the local wildlife in a mountainous habitat, where many endangered or threatened species live.

The Pallas cat has been classified as ‘Near Threatened’ by the IUCN since 2002 and so any new information that can be compiled about them will contribute to better conservation of the species and their habitat.

The expedition to Altai sent five groups of volunteers for two weeks at a time to support Biosphere Expeditions and the local conservation teams.
