It is nice to hear that a group of animals are on the rise instead of on the decline.

The population should have never been allowed to get down as low as it has. Fewer humans, more animals on this earth.

The gret news to finish up for the day, thx! I find it amazing how they can tell the prints in snow apart for their counts. But these cats better NOT get too close to that border before some Korean sees them as food!

Great news! But with a population of only 48- 50 in the wild, this subspecies of leopard still remains critically endangered! With such low numbers and epidemic could wipe out such a small population. I hope these beautiful and very rare leopards
continue to increase!
