The Phoenix Fund intends to provide anti-poaching protection for the rarest cat on earth - the Amur leopard. There are only 30-40 of these cats left.
The Amur leopard is the most endangered feline in the world. It is on the brink of extinction. The population of these leopards consists of 30 cats who inhabit the southwest of the Russian Far East. Poaching is the main threat to the survival of the Amur leopard. The Phoenix Fund will support law enforcement in preventing the illegal hunting of the Amur leopard.
We will provide a highly skilled, mobile, law enforcement team with essential equipment and daily allowance for regular anti-poaching patrols to be conducted in the Leopard Land. Our team will help to protect the ecosystem of the forest.
We will substantially reduce poaching of the Amur Leopard through strengthing law enforcement and habitat protection, improving data collection and nature protection legislation, educating the public, and engaging local communities in conservation efforts.
