Far Eastern tigers will be the heroes of the reality show

A reality show about a family of Far Eastern leopards will appear on the Internet. A unique series about the life of a large family of leopards, filmed with automatic hidden cameras, has become a joint project of the Land of the Leopard Federal State Budgetary Institution and the World Wildlife Fund.

The Amur leopard is one of the most secretive animals on the planet. Video monitoring has become a breakthrough not only for Russian, but also for world science. The new technique makes it possible to study the behavioral characteristics of wild animals without interfering with their lives. The series about the life of a spotted family is the first step towards lifting the veil of secrets about the life of unique animals for absolutely everyone, not just scientists.

Thanks to ten automatic cameras, correctly placed by experts from the Land of the Leopard National Park, for the first time over 70 hours of unique video was obtained about the life of a large leopard family. The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) experts spent more than a month to combine shots taken by different cameras in the same moments, and put together the overall picture of these “puzzles”. At the moment, the family history project consists of seven episodes. But the authors of the project are confident that the continuation will follow.

“The absence of a human operator by a number allows the automation to take pictures of animals as they are. And record their absolutely natural holding. Analyzing the video obtained by the project for the first month, I learned more about Amur leopards than during previous 20 years! ”, Said Vasily Solkin, head of the public relations department of the WWF-Russia Amur branch, director, author of seven documentaries on the Far Eastern leopard.
