Clouded Leopard, Malaysian Forest Reserve

 

In the same regard as sharing important, if small news about conservation efforts, we think it is important for as many people as possible to view animals in the wild in order to sense the importance of conserving their habitat. In this five minute recording, we see the first and only recorded clouded leopard, which is interesting enough.  But we also see its hunting ground, which is a scrappy opening within the forest (making the filming possible) rather than a dense forest cover (more difficult for filming, to state the obvious) where we would more likely find a leopard hunting in Kerala.The Guardian’s ongoing series offering short, sometimes grainy videography of animals in the wild is much appreciated.  Click on the image above to go to the video. It was created in 2010 but has not previously received wide distribution:

The Sundaland clouded leopard (Neofelis diardi), a recently described species, has been caught on camera in a forest reserve in Malaysia. It has been listed as vulnerable by the International Union for Conservation of Nature since 2008
