Come tomorrow morning, a diverse group of wildlife enthusiasts will embark on WWF-India's annual corridor walk through the wilderness to understand the significance of biodiversity and how forest dwellers coexist with forests and wildlife.

This year, the walk will commence from Sajalagan, a village in the periphery of Kanha Tiger Reserve. The Kanha-Achanakmar Corridor Walk is being organised by WWF-India in collaboration with the Forest Departments of Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh.

Kanha-Achanakmar Corridor ensures connectivity and is significant for sustenance of tiger population of Achanakmar and for meta-population of Kanha- Achanakmar complex in Central India. Follow us to keep yourself updated & get first hand accounts from participants as nature's magic unfolds while traversing through the wilderness.

Indian Leopard beautifully illustrated by Inara Aslam who works as a designer with us and often sketches wildlife out of her love for nature during weekends. #whenpassiontakesover

This big cat also known as the Common Leopard is listed as vulnerable on the IUCN red list. In India, leopards are found across a wide range of habitats from the semi-arid regions of western India, to Himalayan forests, dry deciduous forests and the evergreen forests of the North East and the Western Ghats.

"Snow leopards are rare and defend their territories called as a home range which on an average is 200 sq. km. Two cats may seldom come across each other. In the vast territories they occupy, they communicate with
each other by leaving tell-tale signs by scraping the ground with their hind legs and spraying urine against rocky outcrops." - Rishi Kumar Sharma/WWF-India

The video below from WWF-Russia captures this typical snow leopard behavior.

Snow leopards are considered to be an indicator species of the health and resilience of the fragile high-altitude mountains. There could be as few as 4,000 snow leopards living in the wild. Habitat loss, poaching and increasing conflict with continue to push the cat towards extinction. And climate change is now putting the future of their mountain home at even greater risk. WWF with its science based conservation approach is working to address these threats to ensure a secure future and harmonious co-existence between people and the cat.

Can you spot the hidden snow leopard?

Snow leopards are one of the strikingly beautiful and elusive big cats. The cat occupies the slopes of some of the highest and most rugged mountains in the world where temperatures often plummet several degrees below zero.

The big cat for its incredible camouflage blends perfectly with the landscape. Spot the snow leopard in this picture and tell us when you do!
