Nepal uses satellite to track rare snow leopard

Wildlife experts in Nepal are tracking a rare snow leopard by using a collar with a satellite link to discover how climate change and human encroachment are affecting its habitat.The male cat was captured in a snare at the base of Mount Kangchenjunga on the Nepal-India border last month and fitted with the collar which uses a GPS tracking system.Climate change is causing temperatures to rise, meaning snow leopards must move further up mountain slopes where prey is scarcer and making it tougher for them to find food, experts say.A team of 10 Nepali and foreign conservationists trekked for five days to reach Kanchenjunga Conservation Area which is home to some snow leopards.The expedition was carried out with the help of global wildlife organization WWF.
