Taking to Instagram to post a series of pictures of snow leopards, Shruti wrote: “WWF India and I are back with this month’s Shruti Haasan’s #FieldDiaries. And, this time, onto the green carpet, we bring you fascinating facts about the shy and mysterious Snow Leopards.”
“Snow leopards can’t roar, they have a ‘main’ call described as a ‘piercing yowl’ – that is so loud one can hear it over the roar of a river!” the actress wrote.
She went on to say: “Their wide, fur-covered feet act as natural snowshoes. Snow leopards can travel over 25 miles in a single night.”
Stating that the animal was also known as the ‘Ghost of the Mountains’ as they were rarely spotted, Shruti said that WWF India had developed and scaled-up initiatives to protect the animal.
“Some of their specific interventions include engaging local communities to protect the snow leopard and keeping a pulse of their population using robust monitoring tools,” she said, urging her followers to tell her through comments on how they would describe these magnificent creatures.
