The Satyr Tragopans And Humans
The Satyr tragopans live in Bhutan. This rare species of Asian pheasant are unfortunately widely hunted for food. Usually, they’re skittish and run away at the first sight of humans, and understandably so. The photographer Mukherjee tried to capture them on camera for years. It wasn’t until he heard of Bhutan and how the communities live in unison with the animals that he captured them on his camera. Even though they’re considered the least threatened of the tragopans, they’re still considered near threatened. They suffer from forest loss and logging and live in a small population.
