Adopt a leopard »

Fewer than 35 Amur leopards remain in the wild, and their habitat is under threat from logging, forest fires and land clearance for farming. Help us protect the world’s most endangered big cat.

How you're helping the Amur leopards

  • Restoring and linking areas of forest, so leopards can move between habitats
  • Gaining government agreement to safeguard existing nature reserves
  • Promoting sustainable use of natural resources in the region
  • Establishing a programme to increase prey numbers
  • Equipping and training local firefighters to reduce the impact of forest fires
  • Increasing fines for poaching and illegal trade of leopards and prey species
  • Your support will also help fund our other essential work around the world

More about Amur leopards

This incredible animal can run at speeds of up to 37 miles per hour, and has been reported to leap more than 6m horizontally and 3m vertically.

Location: Primorskii Krai, in the Russian Far East

Habitat: Mainly forested with Korean pine and oak

Wild population: Less than 35 are thought to remain in the wild

The threats to the Amur leopards

  • Loss and fragmentation of habitat due to:
    • Conversion of forest to agricultural land
    • Illegal and unsustainable logging
    • Forest fires
  • Poaching and illegal trade for coats and body parts
  • Reductions in prey numbers
  • Conflict with people

How your adoption can help:

  • £60 (or £5 a month) could buy 2000 tree seedlings to be planted in critical areas of leopard habitat
  • £120 (or £10 a month) could buy over 100 cartridges of film for a camera-trap
  • £150 (or £12.50 a month) could prepare 1 kilometre of mineral fire break to stop forest fires in leopard habitats

Tolstyi, El’duga and Narva

Tolstyi is male and his name means well-fed and stocky. He either battled for or inherited his home range at least 10 years ago. El’duga and Narva are females. El’duga is the only surviving female in her home range. Narva’s territory is mostly boggy, lowland meadows, an unusual habitat for an Amur leopard, although she seems to have adapted well.
