Thank you for your support!

Dear friends,


We wanted to express our sincere gratitude for your invaluable support of the Amur leopard conservation project during these years! Together we made the obvious successes in preserving the rarest cats on Earth: now more than 100 leopards live in Russia, although at the beginning of the 21st century, there were three times as few.

 Four hundred camera traps installed in Land of the Leopard National Park, its protected zone and the Kedrovaya Pad Nature Reserve provide specialists with terabytes of material from a total area of almost 369,000 hectares. The park employees manually processed over 700,000 photos taken in a year. Specialists analysed selected photos of leopards by using special software that allows them to identify each animal by its individual spot pattern.

 The Amur leopard population grew thanks to comprehensive measures, including enhanced security, intensive fire-prevention measures and outreach. We are happy to report that the protected area will continue to show their effectiveness in law enforcement and work with SMART without our assistance from now on.

 “In addition to 110 adult animals, specialists recorded 16 cubs, but they give a personal ID number and a place in the database only to those leopards who have left their mothers and started an independent life. It is the number of adult leopards that determines the population condition,” said Anna, an employee of Land of the Leopard research department.

 There were only about 35 Amur leopards in Russia in the early 21st century. Joined efforts of the rangers of the Land of the Leopard National Park, scientists, NGOs, and supporters as you helped to increase their population.
