In Sailugemsky National Park, the snow leopard population has found an unlikely ally - ex-poachers.

Their knowledge of the animal's movements and trap-setting was once used for hunting, but has now been reclaimed to monitor snow leopard populations thanks to a World Wildlife Fund project which began in 2015.

That is awesome! I wonder if they are using ex-poachers to catch poachers too? Didn't see anything about that in the article.
