PhD student Shannon Kachel is back in Central Asia, where his groundbreaking research on interactions between snow leopards, wolves, and their scared prey in Kyrgyzstan is beginning to wind down. Shannon's study is the first ever to examine the ecological consequences of shared predation risk from these two top carnivores for prey decision making. He recently chronicled his progress in a blog for Panthera that can be found here. Nice work, Shannon - we are green with envy!

This study that's being conducted by PhD student Shannon Kachel is hard, since he dealing with weather and animals. A lot of studies have been made, and most of the conclusions they came up were also accurate. Snow and leopards, as well as wolves are all risky factors to be combined. But since you are doing this to prove something, you have our support. Actually, you're a very supportive person because you can do all of these!
