Endangered Species

Snow Leopards & Scottish Cats

The International Society for Endangered Cats Canada has several good videos on their website. Scroll down the page a bit and you’ll find them.

snow leopardIf you watch the Cutest Cat in the World video, you then get a choice of 7 more videos. My favorites are Beyond The Myth Clips 1, 2 and 3, which show great footage of endangered snow leopards in the wild. The cats are magnificent, and the equipment being used to film them is impressive. Warning, though – the 3rd video clip ends sadly. 

Below the Snow Leopard videos on the Society’s webpage is a great video about the Scottish Wild Cat. The wild Scottish Highlands are home to an array of endangered animals that once called all of Britain its home, the video tells us.  The Wild Cats’ gene pool has been diluted by breeding with domestic cats, which may sometimes also pass along disease.  There are only about 400 wild cats left today, and captive breeding is important to keep them alive and healthy.
