On the Pakistan-Afghanistan border, a group called the Snow Leopard Trust is snaring Snow Leopards to attach GPS collars to them. The GPS collars attached to them help the Snow Leopard Trust to track the Snow Leopards and research them.
This group says that there is a chance the snares could kill the endangered cats. This would be a huge outrage because there are only 3,500 to 7,000 Snow Leopards left.
Our critical question is: Is it worth taking the risk to kill an endangered species just to research them?
Here’s what we think:
So what do you think? Should we be snaring endangered animals in an effort to research them?
Leave us a comment to share your thinking and join us again soon on The Blurb.
