For the first time in history, a snow leopard was seen in the Altyn-Emel National Park. The snow leopard is also called the irbis or snow leopard. Currently, their numbers are catastrophically small. About 120-130 individuals live in Kazakhstan, and in the world no more than 7 thousand. They live in the mountains of Central Asia. Aspects of their lives are still poorly understood. Therefore, every appearance of a snow leopard in places where photo traps are set is an important event for scientists.
