read about will's experience in siberian russia
It’s a month now since I returned from the frozen landscape of Russia’s far east where I was working alongside Alexander Balatov and his team of conservationists. Using camera traps we were tracking the world’s largest big cat, the elusive Siberian tiger.
The trip had already been a success, I'd managed to retrieve camera trap footage from a number of sites in the remote Siberian wilderness, battling against exceptional deep snow.
The excitement of the experience is hard to put into words. Just being there, in the last remaining habitat of these endangered tigers, walking in their footsteps, smelling their strong scent markings, placing my fingers into the deep scratch markings they had left behind and seeing their bright orange fur left on the trees and rocks they had rubbed up against.
