April 2013. Specialists of Far Eastern Branch of Russian Academy of Sciences, "Land of the Leopard" National Park, WWF and Wildlife Management Department of Primorsky Province have finalized the results of snow track leopard census

Best hopes exceeded
The census produced four happy results, and one alarming development. In general the results exceeded all expectations - 48-50 individual leopards were detected, or 1.5 times more than 5 years ago.

That is great news

Wouldn't it be fantastic if we could get a small but steady increase for many years to come

Haven't checked out the link yet but I will, Thanks WS

That is really good news, even though the population is still at 50. I know that some people are thinking that the species is practically extinct, but in my opinion this gives us hope. Maybe the cubs of the Amur leopards that are young now will be released if not into the wild yet, at least into some kind of reservation area. From what I have heard it is not a question of decades but years. Very Happy
