NEWSLINK: Endangered snow leopards are coming to the Highlands
A pair of endangered snow leopards are destined to be the new star attractions at the north’s biggest wildlife park.
The big cats are due to arrive at the popular Highland Wildlife Park at Kincraig, near Kingussie, early next year.
A special enclosure, designed to replicate conditions in the mountains of central Asia, will be built at the venue to accommodate the new arrivals.
Douglas Richardson, head of living collections at the park, said he hoped the creatures – categorised as endangered on the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Red List – would feel very much at home.
