Just Another Curious Cat

Just Another Curious Cat Photo
A tiger cub meandering through India’s Bhadra Tiger Reserve couldn’t resist investigating a remote camera trap set up to monitor local wildlife like itself. Look closely, and you’ll see a second camera in the background, which likely snapped images of the curious creature’s rear. The more photos, the better. No tiger sports the same pattern of stripes, so researchers are able to use pictures to identify individual cats and track their movements. Our conservation efforts in India are led by tiger expert Ullas Karanth, and we’re delighted to report that Bhadra’s tiger numbers are on the rise.
