Offbeat  (tags: animals, environment, protection, wildlife )

- 1901 days ago -
Amur leopards in eastern Russia increased to about 48-50 individuals according to a new survey. In 2007, in the same area there were just 27-34. These very rare cats live in a region near the Chinese, North Korean and Russian borders.

Thank you for the news. However, these magnificent cats remain endangered as you know, and I fear for their very existence. (P, N, T)

This a case where the WWF needs to be a watchdog for these animals. It's not as though the Russian gov't can be trusted.

It is extremely good news that the numbers has increased slowly and steadily.
But who can guarantee that the numbers will continue to rise when there are so many illegal poachers out there who are hunting them down just to sell their parts for profits?
