Ghost Cat: Saving The Clouded Leopard
1 x 30'
The clouded leopard is one of the most mysterious and magnificent animals in the world. But now these animals are under assault like never before. This film follows an international team of researchers, activists and species survival experts as they race to protect the world’s last remaining clouded leopards before it’s too late.
We reveal the critical environmental issues that are rapidly shrinking clouded leopard habitat across the region, while images from hidden cameras in the forest provides evidence of the battle that poachers are waging. We go to the front line of the underground animal trade with hidden cameras to reveal how these illegal international markets work. And we see this issue through the eyes of a poacher. We discover why poachers have the advantage in the forest, able to find these predators, when scientists can’t.
Finally, we witness the birth of clouded leopard kittens in captivity – the last hope for the species, should loss of habitat and poachers wipe them out forever in the wild.
