Summary

The Phoenix Fund intends to provide anti-poaching protection for the rarest cat on earth - the Amur leopard. In 2010, when we started our conservation project, there were only 30-40 of these cats left in the wild. Combined efforts of donors, law-enforcement rangers and NGOs resulted in colossal population growth - monitoring conducted in 2019-2020 showed that the number of these big cats exceeded 100! We would like to continue this effort and make sure Amur leopards will have a safe habitat.

Challenge

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 70-100 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.

Solution

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.

Long-Term Impact

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.
