Just a few years ago, the Amur leopard was on the fast track to extinction. In 2017, it was estimated that fewer than 60 amur leopards were left in the wild, making them one of the world's most endangered cats. But thanks to protective efforts in Russia , these critically endangered big cats have renewed hope of avoiding extinction .

The Land of the Leopard National Park was established in 2012, approximately 647,000 acres of prime leopard habitat where they could live and breed in safety . This has proven to be very successful , as the population of amur leopards within it's borders has increased to 84 adults and 19 cubs or adolescents. This is the first time in decades that the amur leopards population has exceeded 100 animals.
