NUR-SULTAN – Such a powerful and graceful wild animal as the snow leopard, which is listed in the Red Book of Kazakhstan as an endangered species, always causes a wave of joy when it appears on the camera.
In late June, the employees of Kolsai Lakes National Park located in the Almaty Region published a video consisting of several scenes with leopards in 2021 and 2022.
