@stevewinterphoto @natgeo This was shot for my upcoming @natgeo Leopard story in the Dec 2015 issue of National Geographic Magazine. Here is mom looking off into the distance - watching and looking as she is with her cubs and she wants to make sure the area is safe before dark. She wanted to make sure they had a secure place to sleep if she was away since there were many predators in the area specifically hyenas. She is protecting her young. The kind of protection and security we want as humans for our families, a similar emotion that we as humans feel. Our animal family is so much like us - they find mates, they have kids, they have to feed themselves and their families, they feed themselves and their families in the same way we as humans used to! If we can find a way to believe they think, feel and have emotions, maybe we can treat them better and find a way to ensure their future on this planet. They are keystone species in their ecosystems, though we as humans are not. Remember just as an example of the importance of their homes - the forests. 50% of our oxygen comes from forest - the other 50% from the oceans. 75% of fresh water comes from forests. So we save their homes - we help save ourselves. National Geographic launched the Big Cats Initiative to raise awareness and implement change to the dire situation facing big cats.

There are no buffer zones around the Park and trapping or shooting wolves is a fairly common practice in Alaska. Shot on assignment as part of our National Parks series!
