The Amur leopard (Panthera pardus orientalis) is a feline carnivore and one of leopard subspecies. It is critically endangered.
The global population of the Amur leopard does not exceed 40-52 individuals. The Amur leopard is native to the south of the Russian Far East, woodlands and mountain areas of the north-eastern China and the Korean Peninsula. Currently, the south-west of the Primorye Territory remains the only proved habitat of the Amur leopard in Russia. The main threats include poaching, insufficient food supplies, and habitat destruction and loss.
Leopards inhabit mountain areas covered with cedar, oak and fir forests. Random felling of coniferous trees, as well as oaks and ash trees, coupled with new road building steadily reduces the habitat of the Amur leopard.
The hunt on leopards has been banned since 1956, and their capture, since 1966.
