Ever wonder what big cats do when no one is looking? WCS Congo Program researcher Patrick Boudjan was surprised to find out when a trio of leopards took more than 800 camera trap images of themselves in just over an hour. It turns out that when big cats are protected, they really like to have a good time!
The images come from the Tropical Ecology Assessment & Monitoring (TEAM) camera trap site at Nouabalé-Ndoki National Park in Northern Congo. Partners are the TEAM Network, Wildlife Conservation Society Congo Program, Conservation International and the Government of Congo Ministère de l’Economie Forestière, et du Dévéloppement Durable.
