Amur Leopard facts:

Roaming the temperate forests of eastern Russia, Amur leopards' main prey species are roe and sika deers, small wild boars, hares, badgers and raccoon dogs. Powerful predators, the Amur leopard has been reported to leap more than 19 feet horizontally and over nine feet vertically. Due to habitat loss and poaching, the Amur leopard is critically endangered—fewer than 40 individuals are thought to exist. In addition to working to secure its habitat, WWF is establishing anti-poaching teams and developing environmental education programs that showcase the animal's importance to the region.
