One of the world's rarest big cats has been downgraded on the international list of threatened species.
The snow leopard is now classed as merely vulnerable, not endangered.
But the animals are still very hard to find and the Snow Leopard Trust believes that downgrading the cat on the international list of threatened species was a premature move.
Their numbers are still in decline and being vulnerable still means threatened.
Al Jazeera’s Robin Forestier Walker reports from Sary-chat Ertash nature reserve.
