The Amur Leopard is one of the worlds rarest cats! It was thought there were only 30 left in the wild. But in seven years its population has doubled to 60 in the wild! New data shows that the Leopard National Park now has at least 57 Amur leopards. 8-12 Amur Leopards were counted in areas of China. Camera traps were spread over more than 900,000 acres of ideal Amur Leopard habitat. Scientists then reviewed 10,000 images and identified nearly 60 individual animals. They can tell they were different animals because of the ink pattens on their coat.
Such a strong rebound in Amur leopard numbers is further proof that even the most critically endangered big cats can recover if we protect their habitat and work together on conservation efforts”
