Good news for everyone who stands for Amur leopard protection!
On April 5th, at the meeting of the Russian Geographical Society in Saint Petersburg Prime-minister Putin announced creation of the new protected area, which will cover 60% of all remaining habitat of the Amur leopard.
By resolution of the government of the Russian Federation, the Land of the Leopard National Park was established on 261,868 hectares in the southwest of Primorye.
This big protected landscape has the capacity to ensure the survival of the rarest wild cat on earth. It is important that the park includes most of the breeding areas which leopards use over the years.
