The latest estimate of Amur leopards in the wild shows an increase from around 35 in 2007 to around 70 in 2016.

Not only that, but DNA analysis shows the ratio of males to females is around 50:50 – which is very hopeful for recovery of the population.

We have also been supporting the creation of anti-poaching groups, a visitors’ centre and education programmes, as well as a new, enlarged protected area for Amur leopards.

The increase in Amur leopard numbers shows that conservation works, and gives us hope that this elusive cat can be brought back from the brink of extinction.
