The rarest of all the big cats, the Amur Leopard lives in the far east of Russia close to the Chinese border. They are critically endangered with maybe as few as 35 remaining in their natural habitat. Conservation efforts continue, with a real focus on potential reintroduction using pure bred zoo stock from across the world. This is a long process however with best estimates saying that even in 20 years time the best that can be achieved is the doubling of the existing wild numbers to around 70.
