Park rangers have recorded thrilling pictures of a last remnant of the endangered Persian leopards in a forest in the northern Iranian province of Gilan.

The captivating images of the leopard in Amlash are a new testament to the thriving ecosystem and heightened security in the region.

The captured video contributes significantly to research and protection initiatives for the threatened species.
