Click any thumbnail for details

_--- ____________

The Amur Leopard (Panthera pardus orientalis) is critically endangered.
It is one of the rarest felids in the world with an estimated 27 to 32 individuals remaining in the wild (2007 snow track count).
Its common names are Amur leopard from Amur River or Far Eastern Leopard.
There are approximately 300 Amur leopards in captivity, mostly in zoos in Europe, North America and countries of the former Soviet Union.
Most, but not all, of these leopards are in zoos participating in managed conservation breeding programmes.
Zoos play a very valuable role in making the public aware of the existence of Amur leopard and the urgent need to improve its conservation.
