New Clouded Leopard Photos from the Field

We've recently received from great new photos from two different field projects. First (above) comes this nice shot of a female from Andreas Wilting's CLP-supported project in Tangkulap Forest Reserve in Sabah, Malaysian Borneo. This is his first photo capture of a cloudie in his new study site.

We've also received a couple of photos from cameras set as part of a ranger training exercise in Thailand's Thap Lan National Park by the FREELAND Foundation (formerly PeunPa Foundation). While a formal research project has not yet been established at this site, it is great that they were able to get confirmation of the presence of clouded leopards. The photos are presumably of a mother and older cub. It's always exciting to get a glimpse at the lives of these gorgeous cats in the wild!
